Arbor Day Foundation tree booklet available

For a $3 donation, the Arbor Day Foundation is offering a booklet, “Conservation Trees,” designed to help people plant and care for trees.

“Conservation Trees” features illustrations, color photos and simple descriptions.

“This is an ideal resource for tree planters throughout the country,” said John Rosenow, chief executive and founder of the Arbor Day Foundation. “It is important that people know how to properly plant and care for their trees.

“Taking care of existing trees is just as critical as planting new ones,” Rosenow added. “Trees clean the air, keep our water sources pure and conserve energy. Trees provide so many benefits to a community, and that’s why it is so vital to take care of them.”

The booklet includes tips on using shade trees and windbreaks to save on energy costs and attracting songbirds.

To receive the booklet, send a $3 check along with your name and address to Conservation Trees, Arbor Day Foundation, 100 Arbor Ave., Nebraska City, NE 68410, or order online at arborday.org/conservationtrees.
