SOLON– The Girl Scout troops of Solon would like to offer a free tree to anyone in the Solon area to commemorate the organization’s century celebration. The red maple and white spruce trees have been purchased through the National Arbor Day Foundation. Both are selected for quick growth and will do well in this area at this time in a variety of soil conditions. If cared for (watered), the trees should last for years to come. If interested, the Solon Girl Scouts request the following:
• Call Iowa One Call and mark the place you would like the tree planted;
• Fence the sapling to protect it until it can protect itself;
• Keep the supplied plaque at the trunk of the tree to remind future owners or passers-by of the year of celebration.
To reserve your tree, email firstname.lastname@example.org , place “tree” in the subject line, include your name, phone number, address and whether you would like a red maple or white spruce.
Girl Scouts will plant the trees Friday, June 1, through Sunday, June 3. You will receive a call to confirm your planting time. Thank you for celebrating with us and supporting Girl Scouts.
