Adopt-a-Tree's final event this year will be November 5

MIAMI (November 04, 2016)

The last Adopt-a-Tree tree giveaway event of this year will take place at 1 p.m., Saturday, November 5, at the Natural Areas Management compound. Miami-Dade residents eligible to adopt two free trees will be able to choose from a variety of tree species including:  Sugar Apple, Paradise Tree, Longan, and Indian Tamarind (while supplies last).

Experts will be onsite to show participants how to properly plant and care for their new trees. Community service hours are available for students who volunteer to work an Adopt-a-Tree event.

The Adopt-a-Tree program was created in 2001 to help increase the tree canopy of Miami-Dade County. Since then, more than 190,000 free trees have been given away within the community.
