MIAMI LAKES RECOGNIZED FOR TREE CITY USA GROWTH AWARD 
 
Miami Lakes, FL - The Town of Miami Lakes has been recognized for the past 9 years as a Tree City USA Award recipient and was recently congratulated for receiving a Growth Award as well. The Arbor Day Foundation sponsors the Tree City USA Program in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service and the National Association of State Foresters, and added that “residents of Miami Lakes should be proud to live in a community that makes the planting and care of trees a priority”.

The Tree City USA Growth Award is given to communities that go beyond the four standards of Tree City USA that demonstrate improvement and growth of local tree care.

“It is a great testament to the dedication of our residents, staff and Council that Miami Lakes has continued to exceed recognized community standards and gone above and beyond to ensure that the Miami Lakes brand of beautiful tree lined street remains in place,” said Mayor Michael Pizzi.

The Town is proud to have completed a comprehensive Tree Management Plan, which establishes an organized, proactive tree maintenance program to ensure Miami Lakes continues "Growing Beautifully."
