There is an old saying, “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the next best time is now.”
Whether this is really an old Chinese Proverb (as indicated by Google), or can be attributed to somebody else, makes no difference as to the truth of the statement. Of course, the proverb can also be used to describe much in life other than trees, but for this blog, we are going to only look at trees, and those trees planted in the last couple of years at River Valley.
Why only the last couple of years and not 20 years?
You don’t need 20 years to make a difference.
In the photos below will show you just how quickly you can make a difference in a short period of time.

Planting After Three Years
I hope this handful of photos inspires you to get planting now. The earth needs more trees.
