Celebrating Arbor Day

national arbor day

Friday, April 28

Trees are the most familiar, visible, and impactful environmental assets we share and enjoy within Afton Village. We congratulate those homeowners who have planted new trees over recent years for all the beauty and value they contribute. We hope others will be encouraged and inspired by these new trees and do the same. Throughout Houston, the most desirable neighborhoods have well-established and maintained trees–for good reason!

Trees are an essential part of what makes Afton Village special and the preservation and care of our trees must continue to be a priority for everyone. They enhance our environment, provide shade to our homes by reducing energy costs, provide habitat for local wildlife, and reduce noise pollution. Trees act to improve our air quality along with biodiversity among other canopy trees within our surrounding community.

This year, Afton Village Homeowners Association would like to recognize Trees for Houston and Rick Breidenbach who together collaborated in providing a variety of 45 oak tree saplings for our Afton Village neighbors! The variety of species consisted of Shumard Red Oaks, Nuttall Oaks, Pecans, Pin Oaks, and Texas Red Oaks, all ranging in height from 4’ to 6’ tall. Rick and your HOA hope this will inspire others in the neighborhood to do their part in preserving our trees and continuing to plant replacements.

Rick’s donation was well-received by neighbors expressing appreciation for this contribution to Afton Village. The trees were located on his driveway where a “Free Trees” sign allowed for lots of meets and greets and conversations about trees and Afton Village.

If you missed this opportunity, Trees for Houston is holding a “Tanglewood Tree Giveaway” (all oak trees) this Saturday, April 29 between 9 AM – 11 AM at
1616 Tanglewood, between Sage and San Felipe.



The HOA has not offered this Event since 2019 so let’s take advantage of making a profit by selling our “treasured” items. The HOA will advertise this event on social media and signs will be placed along Antoine seven days before. As in previous years, The Village of Afton Woods will also hold its Community Garage Sale that day and share in the advertising.

If you are interested in participating in this event, we ask that you let us know by sending your confirmation to aftonvillagegaragesale@gmail.com with your address so that some flags at your curb can mark the spot!

A NOTE OF CAUTION: Please be a SAFE garage-seller! Always have buddy with you and preferably keep your earnings in a fanny pack or in your pockets.

Good Luck and Have a Successful Garage Sale!

(Feel free to set your own hours of operation)

Neighborhood Night Out 2019

Come out to join your neighbors at Afton Village’s Neighborhood Night Out. We will host the event at the dead end of Afton and Shavelson streets. Please join us to show support for the neighborhood, meet your neighbors and to thank our first responders for their service. A strong and safe community is our very best crime deterrent. This event is sponsored by our Afton Village HOA.
