When you join the Arbor Day Foundation, you get 10 free trees as a gift.

Some local conservationists want the foundation to rethink the offerings for St. Louis.

The foundation picks the trees based on what grows best in the climate, while avoiding invasive species. But two years ago, horticulturist Besa Schweitzer noticed that one package included golden rain tree. And that had her puzzled.
