I’m a sucker for flowering trees. Our little burg has loads of Bradford Pear trees and at one time had a major thoroughfare lined with cherry trees that were part of Lady Bird Johnson’s Highway Beautification Act.
Unfortunately these trees are almost all gone because they are aging and losing limbs. Some trees have been lost to “ignorance.” Developers/builders hack them down and then apologize later that they “didn’t know.”
If you appreciate the fact that billboards don’t blight the interstate highway system, thank Lady Bird for that too.
ArborDay.org is offering ten free trees with a $10 membership. How cool is that? If you don’t want flowering trees, they have ten different Oak trees or ten Blue Spruce trees and others (depending on your hardiness zone.) This is a “while they last offer” so don’t hesitate.
The trees are guaranteed to grow or they will replace them!
Your 10 free trees are guaranteed to grow, or the Foundation will replace them free of charge. Your six to twelve inch trees will come postpaid (Free shipping) with easy planting instructions.
The world needs more trees. Now if they could develop a self-mulching or quickly biodegradable tree leaf, I would be really cool with more trees!
