Every now and then, Miami-Dade County gives away free trees in a program they call Adopt-A-Tree, which provides two free trees a year per household.
In addition, Neat Streets Miami is trying to achieve a goal of planting a million trees in Miami by 2020 with its Million Trees Miami campaign in the hopes of achieving 30 percent canopy in Miami-Dade County.
Here is the schedule for the next giveaways:
Oct. 7: Celebrate the grand opening of the new TD Bank and take home a free tree, courtesy of Neat Streets Miami. 200 trees will be given away. Each household will be eligible to adopt one (1) tree: either a Green Buttonwood (100 trees available) or a Simpson’s Stopper (100 trees available). Please bring a valid driver’s license or other proof of residence, such as a water bill, to confirm your address and claim your tree on the day of the event. Must pre-register here. 10 am-1 pm at TD Bank, 9201 W Flagler St., Miami, FL 33172.
