Reforestation efforts taking place in northwestern Miami-Dade County
The Miami-Dade Northwest Corridor Urban Tree Canopy Assessment focuses on the environmental and socioeconomic impacts from the urban tree canopy (UTC) among 147 square miles of the most dense, growing, and socioeconomically diverse urban core communities of northwestern Miami-Dade County. The primary goals of this assessment and report are to establish baseline data on the extent and function of the existing urban forest and to provide a resource to guide future community forest management and reforestation efforts.

Miami working to plant one million trees by 2020
Neat Streets Miami. Chaired by Miami-Dade County Commissioner Dennis C. Moss, launched Million Trees Miami in 2011, with a goal of hitting their number by 2020. As of end of 2013, they were at 162,000.
With 838,000 trees to go by 2020, they could use everyone's assistance. So what can Miami's average Joe or Jane do to help the project? You can report any trees you plant and you can also volunteer with a local nonprofit that help with tree plantings.
