TREEmendous Miami, an Adopt-a-Tree partner, is looking for volunteers to help plant trees for our elderly and disabled residents. This is a great opportunity to restore the canopy in our community and educate residents about the multiple benefits of trees.

Don't worry, you will be taught how to properly plant and care for the trees!

Volunteers will meet at 8:30 a.m. for an orientation session. We then divide into teams, each lead by an experienced TREEmendous Miami volunteer tree planter. Our tasks are usually finished about noon and we gather back at the same pre-determined location to turn in paperwork and tools, issue Community Service Certificates, and share a few laughs about our morning labors.

Bring sun screen, lots of water and a shovel/rake/gloves (if you don't have any of these tools, we can provide them). Recommended attire: closed-toe shoes, light weight long pants, long sleeved shirt, and a shade hat.
