Tree Planting

With the help of some wonderful volunteers, we planted nearly 400 Ponderosa Pine seedlings in Sunriver last week. We are proud to be part of Sunriver’s legacy as a Tree City USA Community for 40 years. And thanks to a partnership with @operationappleseed, we’ll be planting thousands of more trees over the next year.
