“Years that fade and flush again” refers to the universal running of time. The poet has mentioned it when talking about the long-lasting benefits of plantation. He describes a tree as the “seed and bud of days to be / And years that fade and flush again;” It means that the tree planted at present will bear flowers, fruits and seed for a long long time in future, for years to come.
