TREASURE COAST -- Joining the Arbor Day Foundation is an ideal way to get in the mood for spring planting. Anyone who joins the foundation in February will receive 10 free Eastern redbud trees to plant when the weather turns warmer.

The free trees are part of the nonprofit Foundation's Trees for America campaign.

"Redbuds will help beautify Florida for many years to come," said John Rosenow, founder and chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation. "They will also add to the proud heritage of Florida's existing Tree City USA communities."

The Tree City USA program has supported community forestry throughout the country for more than 35 years.

The trees will be shipped postpaid at the right time for planting, between March 1 and May 31, with enclosed planting instructions. The 6- to 12-inch trees are guaranteed to grow or they will be replaced free of charge.

Members also receive a subscription to the foundation's bimonthly publication, "Arbor Day" and "The Tree Book," which contains information about planting and care.

To become a member of the foundation and receive the free trees, send a $10 contribution to Ten Free Redbud Trees, Arbor Day Foundation, 100 Arbor Ave., Nebraska City, NE 68410,by Feb. 28 or visit arborday.org/february.
