A U.S. Forest Service grant of $7,500 allowed for the town of Cutler Bay to treat 622 mature trees and provide education material door-to-door to 500 homes.
Cutler Bay’s tree beautification program is funded in part by an Urban and Community Forestry Grant through the U.S. Forest Service. Trees were pruned and maintained, creating natural street canopies throughout the town’s neighborhoods.
In the last three years of funding, the town has maintained more than 1,000 trees and delivered educational material about tree pruning to more than 1,300 homes.
For more information about the town’s tree pruning program, please contact Alfredo Quintero, public works director and ISA-Certified arborist, or Yenier Vega, stormwater utility manager at 305-234-4262 or visit the town’s website, www.cutlerbay-fl.gov.
