2017 Adopt-a-Tree starts July 8
The Adopt-a-Tree program provides Miami-Dade single-family or duplex homeowners with two FREE trees every year, even if they have adopted trees in previous years.
Trees reduce air-conditioning costs by providing shade, while a good landscape improves a home’s appearance. Trees also help increase a property’s real estate value and reduce flooding by absorbing excess rain water. They also help to remove significant amounts of carbon dioxide from the air every year. Carbon dioxide is considered to be a leading factor affecting climate change.
Adopt-a-Tree species, event dates and times are subject to change. Tree quantities are limited and will be given away on a first-come, first-served basis.
Single-family homeowners adopted more than 195,000 trees since the program’s inception in 2001.
Since the Adopt-a-Tree Program started in 2001, more than 197,000 trees have been adopted.
This year’s event starts Saturday, July 8 at Harris Field Pavilion 1034 NE 8 Street, Homestead from 9 a.m. to noon. Remember to get there early as tree quantities are limited and will be given away on a first-come, first-served basis.
