Miami-Dade County Adopt-a-Tree volunteer Lizette Menendez is a soldier of the green movement.
On Saturday morning, when she wasn't greeting a line of people strolling by her in six languages, she shouted information about tamarind, star fruit and desert senna trees to all who would listen at Miami-Dade County's tree giveaway in Homestead.
''You really have to get excited about the environment,'' said Menendez, between sips of coffee. ``Besides, this is all so exciting.''
