Temple Terrace residents can now spruce up their yards for free with a tree from the city’s Adopt-A-Tree program.

Each month, code enforcement officers will visit a Temple Terrace neighborhood. Information will be sent to homes in a particular neighborhood a month before the scheduled sweep. Homeowners interested in a free tree can call ahead and make arrangements to meet with the Code Compliance Director. An on-site assessment to determine the right tree for the space will be planned.

Homeowners can choose a free live oak, longleaf pine, magnolia or bald cypress. Code officers will check for underground utility lines and prepare the site for planting, then install the tree. All the homeowner has to do is water their new tree until it gets established.

For more information, call (813) 506-6680.
