RENO — As part of the Arbor Day Foundation’s Trees for America campaign, everyone from Nevada who joins the Foundation in September will receive 10 free Arizona cypress trees.

Trees for America is a program of the Arbor Day Foundation that encourages everyone to plant trees to help the environment. The Arbor Day Foundation is the largest nonprofit organization in the United States dedicated to planting trees, with more than 1 million members nationwide.

“Arizona cypress trees can be used as an ornamental tree, as a windbreak or privacy screen or as a living Christmas tree in your landscape,” said John Rosenow, chief executive and founder of the Arbor Day Foundation. “They will also add to the proud heritage of Nevada’s 12 Tree City USA communities. For 35 years, Tree City USA has supported community forestry across Nevada, and planting these trees will enhance the state’s tree-planting tradition.”

The trees will be shipped postpaid at the right time for planting, between Oct. 15 and Dec. 10. The 6- to 12-inch trees are guaranteed to grow or they will be replaced free of charge. Planting instructions are enclosed with each shipment of trees.

New members of the Arbor Day Foundation will also receive “The Tree Book,” which includes information about tree planting and care.

To receive the free Arizona cypress trees, send a $10 membership contribution to: Ten Arizona Cypresses, Arbor Day Foundation, 100 Arbor Ave., Nebraska City, NE 68410, by Sept. 30, or join online at
