Phase 2 Update: Trees and Plants are underway!

July 12, 2022
by Meg Daly

The moment we have all been waiting for!

Today we began the process of selecting plants and trees from local nurseries for The Underline’s Phase 2.  Joined by our partners from the Miami Dade Department of Transportation & Public Works and Lead Engineering and landscape architect Ken Gardner, we visited nurseries in Homestead to start the selection of thousands of plants and trees coming to The Underline’s Phase 2. 

Here are the trees and plants we selected:

  • Gumbo Limbo Trees
  • Thatch Palms
  • Silver Buttonwood (which will grow into a tree)
  • Two-tone Satinwood Trees
  • Sabal Palms
  • Live Oak
  • Paradise Trees
  • Tamarind Trees
  • Magnificent Cycads

All plants and trees were chosen based on the root, tree, and canopy health, height minimums, and more.
