The Arbor Day Foundation has a handy tree-care booklet that is designed to help people plant and care for trees. Anyone can receive the Conservation Trees booklet just by giving a $3 donation to the nonprofit tree-planting organization.

Conservation Trees is an easy-to-use booklet and features illustrations, colorful photos and easy-to-understand descriptions.

"It is important that people know the proper way to plant and care for their trees, and Conservation Trees is an ideal resource for tree planters throughout the country," said John Rosenow, chief executive and founder of the Arbor Day Foundation.

"Trees are valuable, and it is important that we take good care of existing ones and plant more. Trees clean the air, help keep our water sources pure and help us conserve energy. Trees provide so many benefits to a community, and that's why it is so vital to take good care of them."

The booklet provides details about the right way to plant and prune trees. Also included are tips on how to use shade trees and windbreaks to save on energy costs, attract songbirds, create a living snow fence, and to learn how to plant the right tree in the right place.

To receive the Conservation Trees 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 www.arborday.org/conservationtrees.
