Then and Now – Olivia of Scandia, Minnesota

Olivia planted this northern white cedar when she was 11 years old.

5 years later, both Olivia and her tree are thriving.

“We are so grateful that you are doing the program and continuing to hand out trees to kids. When they can see them grow and know that they were the ones who planted the little seedling – it’s an empowering position for them to be in. They can see that they are making a difference for the environment and for the wildlife who uses the trees for shelter and/or a resting place.”
