Who wants a free tree? Miami-Dade County is once again offering the freebies as part of Adopt-A-Tree.
The county program provides two trees a year per household during a special event, but you must register in advance because the giveaway is only while supplies last.
The first tree giveaways are:
- Saturday, July 16 at Florida International University (FIU) main campus (11200 SW 8th Street, Miami, FL 33199).
- Saturday, September 24 at the South Dade Cultural Arts Center (10950 SW 211th Street, Cutler Bay, FL 33189).
Who’s eligible for Miami-Dade County’s Adopt-a-Tree program?
- Homeowners of a single-family or duplex residential property in Miami-Dade County
- Renters who have permission from the property owner (including a letter of permission and/or a copy of the property owner’s driver’s license)
Other cases may qualify, so residents are asked to review the “Adopt-a-Tree Eligibility and Requirements” section on the website.
Because trees are limited – and are available on a first-come, first-served basis – anyone who’s eligible and interested should register ahead of time by clicking here. Registration is meant to save time and facilitate the process, but organizers warn it “does not guarantee trees or tree preferences when supplies run out.”
Residents who qualify will be able to choose from:
- Grafted Mango (one per household)
- Pigeon Plum
- Mexican Alvaradoa
