July 27 | Miami-Dade Adopt-a-Tree 2013
time: 9 a.m. - noon
location: Harris Field Pavilion | 1034 NE 8th Street | Homestead, Florida
The Miami Dade County Adopt-a-Tree 2013 season is underway! The next two FREE tree giveaways will take place on July 27 and September 14, 2013.
Miami-Dade County single-family or duplex homeowners are eligible to receive 2 FREE trees per year, even if they have adopted trees in past years. Tree species, event dates and times are subject to change. Tree quantities are limited and will be given away on a first come, first served basis.
Trees reduce air-conditioning costs by providing shade, while a well designed landscape improves a home's appearance and aesthetic value. Trees also increase a property's real estate value and
reduce flooding by absorbing excess rain water. Trees help to remove tons of carbon dioxide from the air every year. Carbon dioxide is considered to be a factor affecting climate change.
For more information and eligibility requirements, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 311. You can also call 305-372-6784 from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
