A section of rare and endangered forest in Florida’s Miami-Dade County will soon be a Walmart, Chick-fil-A, Chili’s, 900 apartments, and an LA Fitness.
I have particular disdain for Walmart and Chik-Fil-A, but in this case they are no different from any other strip mall or corporate big box store. The fault here lies with the politicians. They’ve not protected this area and that is their job.
This is why you should fight for tree boards and Urban Forestry Councils. This is why you should donate to The Tree Fund and The Arbor Day Foundation (donate today and get 10 free trees!). Please click the links.
I work with these groups, am a member of state and local boards, my urban forestry council, International Arborist Association, and my state chapter. I work with trees everyday. Feel free to hit the ask button if you have any questions. This is my life’s work.
