BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA, FLORIDA – The City of Cocoa is holding a Tree Beauty Contest for their residents to submit their favorite Cocoa Tree.

A well-maintained and healthy tree canopy provide beauty for our community.

Trees also benefit us by improving air quality, reducing heat with shade, providing wildlife habitat, absorbing stormwater and protecting us during storms by dampening winds.
