Please be advised residents and businesses along SW 4th Street from SW 2nd Avenue to SW 187th Avenue, Brightview will begin grinding one hundred eleven (111) tree stumps and removing forty-one (41) infected palms in the area within the next two weeks.
This project was made possible with the Growing Roots for Environmentally Equitable Neighborhoods (GREEN) Miami-Dade County Matching Grant. Planting of the eighteen (18) Live Oak and twenty-four (24) Dwarf White Trumpet trees in the corridor will enhance the tree canopy percentage in the City of Homestead. The forty-two (42) trees are tentatively scheduled to be planted in the third and fourth week of April. The project will increase shade, beautify the community, improve air quality and create more environmentally equitable spaces in the community.
