Tree-mendous Volunteer Work

It’s not every day that a volunteer organization is honored with…well…a day. That is, a day in their honor, set aside just for them, to recognize all of their hard work. In Miami, the City Commission did just that, honoring TREEmendous Miami by proclaiming it to be “TREEmendous Miami Day.” The group certainly deserves the recognition, having planted more than 25,000 trees over 16 years, with only volunteers doing the work.  Their long term success and dedication to their mission (“we are volunteers united to build community pride by planting, promoting and preserving trees in Miami-Dade County”) is an inspiration and a model for any similar organization.
