A couple of my neighbors told me about this site. You join the foundation with either a $10 (six month) or $15 (1 year) donation and receive TEN free trees!

Trees - The National Arbor Day Foundation

Thought I would pass this along since there have been so many people looking for houses with trees. Maybe perhaps this might be a fun project to start with on your new home.

*Remember, some HOA's need approval before planting trees. Blah.

It's a very useful web site for understanding more about different trees; the free tree's are a little disappointing being between 6 and 12 inches so will take a bit of care and nurturing before they develop

It's also great for understanding how to plant a tree correctly. I'm shocked how professionals in so many new subdivisions plant trees so deeply. It helps a tree take-off quickly b/c the roots are deep -- but it leads to all kinds of disease and pest problems and exponentially cuts the tree's lifespan. When my builder gets my tree ready to plant, I'll be ready w/ shovel in hand to make sure the tree gets planted correctly.

I got those trees once, years ago. It was a bunch of twigs with a rubber band around them. I hope they are better now!
