Every year for Arbor Day, our city (and I suspect a lot of your cities), gives away Free Trees for the wonderful Day. We didn't find out about it until last year, when we had already been homeowners for 2 years, but we were so glad that we did find out. Last year a Magnolia was our tree of choice. And this year we got a Yellow Trumpet Tree! We are so excited to plant it. I already know where I want to put it...were just waiting for it to get accustomed to it's spot before we plant it.
