When you think of Miami Beach you think of all the incredible restaurants/bars on Ocean Drive and most importantly the beautiful beach and palm trees. Well that could all be changing.

“We’re in the process of going through a major reforestation effort, with a goal to plant 5,000 trees by the next 10 years,” according to Elizabeth Wheaton, Miami Beach’s environment and sustainability director. That is one major step in adding more canopy into our green spaces, our parks, as well as our roadways.

More canopy trees will help with carbon reduction, absorb more rain water and help provide shaded streets. But the plan has come under fire because it calls for the reduction of palm trees.
