anyone want trees?

I’m pretty poor, so I can’t really afford to support many charitable causes. However, I do support the Arbor Day Foundation. Ever year they offer me 10 free trees and we’ve got no place to plant them. Does anyone want my trees? I can have them sent to anyone else I want and they’ll come this Spring. You can choose:

10 Flowering Trees
10 Colorado Blue Spruces
10 Trees Mix
10 Wild Bird Garden
10 White Firs
10 Oak Trees
10 White Pines
10 Redbuds
10 Norway Spruces
10 Autumn Classics

Go to this page and type in your zip code to get a list of the trees in each package. Anyone want my trees?

    I’ll take them if no one wants them (oak tress would be nice). We try to plant 3 treees a year (they are much bigger though).

    Yes- I am putting in a garden at home in the spring for Matthew- it is going around an already existing tree- I have an angel bench and we are going to add all the plants (primarily shade). I thought about making a stepping stone called "Matthew’s Garden" and decoration it with stained glass or pebbles. It has bird feeders in the trees and will have a brick wall around it.
    I won’t plant a tree here but I’ll plant a tree for Matthew someplace else so if people want them to put in a garden- I love the idea.

    You could have Kay and Bob pick one specific kind and give one to everyone for their Matthew’s Gardens. We will have the garden at the farm, Kay/Bob’s garden, and I think La is going to do one (La, help me out here – am I correct?). Someday when I have a place I want to plant one. I loved the seed cards we got and I have saved mine until I can plant it somewhere permanent.

    I think Matthew’s Garden is so cool and I think we should promote it, like a foundation. Encourage others to build a Matthew’s Garden so that he will live on in everyone’s memory. I’m serious here! People could make a $10 donation and we could send them a specific tree and some seeds (wildflowers, perhaps). It would be cool if we could figure out a way to set it up so that the money would go to Parallel (I’m not sure how that is spelled). Is this possible? I don’t really know but I’m liking the possibility. I will have to look into this.

    These will come as sticks. You have to plant them in a bed and transfer them in a year or two. I will send them out to you! If anyone else wants them, I think I’ll re-up in 6 months and they’ll offer me more trees.
