Adopt-a-Tree

The Adopt-a-Tree program provides Miami-Dade County single-family and duplex homeowners with up to two free trees every year. More than 217,000 trees have been adopted since the program's inception in 2001.

Adopt-a-Tree events returned in 2021 after traditional events were paused during the global pandemic. In 2020, and up to spring of 2021, the Adopt-a-Tree program donated trees to schools, hospitals and through food drives managed by County partners. For summer 2022, there are at least three Adopt-a-Tree events planned.

Planting a tree provides many benefits:

  • Reduces air-conditioning costs by providing shade
  • Improves a home's appearance, which can help to increase a property's real estate value
  • Provides a natural habitat for wildlife
  • Reduces flooding by absorbing excess rainwater and increasing infiltration
  • Removes significant amounts of carbon dioxide from the air, which reduces the impact on climate change
