Adopt-a-Tree Miami-Dade County

The Adopt-a-Tree program provides Miami-Dade single-family or duplex homeowners with two FREE trees every year. Single-family homeowners adopted more than 190,000 trees since the program’s inception in 2001.

Trees reduce air-conditioning costs by providing shade, while a good landscape improves a home’s appearance. Trees also help increase a property’s real estate value and reduce flooding by absorbing excess rain water. They also help to remove significant amounts of carbon dioxide from the air every year. Carbon dioxide is considered to be a leading factor affecting climate change.
