About Shading Palmetto Bay 2023

The Village of Palmetto Bay has received funding from the Growing Roots for Environmentally Equitable Neighborhoods (GREEN) program to plant 51 native, shade trees in the public right-of-way, as part of Palmetto Bay's "Shading Palmetto Bay 2023" initiative.   The goal of the program is to increase the tree canopy throughout the Village, provide shade for our residents and rebuild our tree inventory.    The GREEN program is part of Miami-Dade County’s  Neat Streets Matching Grant program 

One or more of the shade tree species listed below will be planted in the swale area in front of your home.  The project is expected to be completed by June 30, 2023.  

Residents may opt out of the program by contacting Yvonne Picado in our Public Services Department at 305-969-5011 or via email.  

Scroll down to see the names and photos of the proposed tree species, which were recommended by the Village's Tree Advisory Board.
