'2017 was a rough year for growing trees in SoCal because of the record temperatures. It became an early learning experience in my career that prepared me for these past few years of heatwaves and record highs.
I'm seeing this as a rebirth year for the farms, and planting over 5000 trees was an essential part of the future for them.'
