Opa-Locka is a bad city. People want to claim it's doing better because the murder rate went down in 2012 compared to 2011. It had a murder rate of 38.51 in 2011 while in 2012 it had a murder rate of 12.84. That's just a fluke. Murder is predicted to actually go up in 2013: Two Dead In Opa-locka Shooting « CBS Miami

It's pretty hard to find the crime stats on Opa-Locka. i wonder why maybe because the police are corrupt, and they do not want the people to know that Opa-Locka is still a **** hole city with a high crime rate. Miami has a problem of thinking that planting trees, plants and building new apartments and architecture is going to magically stop the crime rate. They tried it with Overtown it did not work. They are trying it with Little Haiti and does not seem to be working. They are trying it with opa-locka and guess what it's not going to work. Will they get the message that beautifying a ghetto does not work? No. The only thing it will stop is urban decay. Just because it's beautiful does not mean it's safe: it's just an illusion.

Yes that is the reason why they plants tree. It's called beautification, and it's related to gentrification. The idea is if you can get people to plants trees and beautify the city then it will bring the neighbourhood together and stop crime. That's the idea. What they really want is the neighbourhood to look beautiful to jump start the process of gentrification, so it can push the low income residents out and bring the new high income residents in.
