Miami Lakes continues to be recognized for its abundant, beautiful tree canopy and exceptional tree management.
The Town has received Tree City USA status for 12 straight years and has received the Tree City USA Growth Award for 10 straight years. This now makes Miami Lakes a “Sterling City.”
More than 3,400 communities have made the commitment to becoming a Tree City USA and have achieved the status by meeting four core standards of sound urban forestry management: Maintaining a tree board or department, having a community tree ordinance, spending at least $2 per capita on urban forestry and celebrating Arbor Day.
The Tree City USA Growth Award is awarded by the Arbor Day Foundation to recognize higher levels of tree care. The award highlights innovative programs and projects as well as increased commitment of resources for urban forestry.
A community that has earned 10 Growth Awards is recognized as a Sterling Tree City USA. Sterling communities are regarded as leaders in community forestry and are often looking upon as innovators.
