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:
Saturday, July 14, 2018
Harris Field Park, 1034 NE 8th St, Homestead. 9 a.m. to noon
Saturday, September 29, 2018
Amelia Earhart Park, 401 E. 65th St, Hialeah, 9 a.m. to noon
Please check back one month before the event to confirm event location, event date, and trees species available.
You can also exchange old shower heads for high-efficiency shower heads and up to three heavily used regular light bulbs for compact fluorescent light bulbs for free while supplies last.
