What’s Different – Trees in the Middle of the Road

Tree in Road

This is another one of my favorite things about Paraguay.  Mature trees are not cut down when a new residential road is excavated!  A reflector is simply placed on both sides of the tree and the road goes around it.  I fid it very winsome and it makes a great landmark too!

Could you imagine this here in the states!! It would be down in a few weeks just from people driving too fast and running into it over and over!!

I love that about Paraguay as well. Have you heard all the different explanations for why the trees are in the middle of the road? Another interesting thing about Paraguay ;)

Yes! We have trees in the middle of the road and they work great as landmarks for newcomers!

I love Paraguayans' love for nature and its preservation.
