A Green Win-Win

Arbor Day is coming up on April 29, and in preparation, today, I became a member of the Arbor Foundation, and I’m here to tell you that you should, too.


A six-month membership starts at only $10 and for a year, the starting price is $15.

What do you get for your membership?

To start with, you can choose to receive 10 trees, specifically suited to your location (based on your zip code). If you live in an apartment, you can choose to have the Arbor Foundation plant 10 trees in a national forest in your name. I chose to receive 10 trees to plant in our yard. How can you beat this? Ten trees for $10 and they guarantee their trees will be healthy. (Click here to learn more.)

On top of that, members get discounts from 33–56 percent off for additional tree orders, a bimonthly newsletter, and a guide to help plant and care for trees. There’s a really good selection of trees with everything from fast-growing to fruit trees.

The Arbor Day Foundation site also sells fair-trade organic coffee as well as other gifts and resources.

If you join, be sure to check their shipping dates for trees here as they ship in spring and fall.

I’ve got to tell you, I love this website. With the Arbor Foundation, I’m able to get beautiful trees that are guaranteed, while supporting an organization that helps us all be a bit greener. Now that’s a win-win. 🙂
