Miami-Dade County, Florida International University to host 7th annual Tree Summit
Anyone interested in building sustainable urban forests and greenbelts in South Florida — or anyone looking for a job in the industry — can attend a free Tree Summit in Miami.
Miami-Dade County Commissioner Dennis C. Moss will join Florida International University in hosting the 7th Annual Tree Summit on Wednesday.
The event brings together local elected officials, government agencies, industry professionals, and non-profit organizations whose goals are to increase the county's tree canopy coverage to 30 percent by the year 2020. "The Jobs are in the Trees" summit will also include industry experts who will speak on the importance of trees in creating healthier, livable communities, and how they enhance economic growth and stability.
Space is limited for the event. Register online at milliontrees.miamidade.gov.
