We illustrate the use of tropical methods by generalizing a formula due to Abramovich and Bertram, extended later by Vakil. Namely, we exhibit relations between enumerative invariants of the Hirzebruch surfaces $ \Sigma _n$ and $ \Sigma _{n+2}$, obtained by deforming the first surface to the latter.

Our strategy involves a tropical counterpart of deformations of Hirzebruch surfaces and tropical enumerative geometry on a tropical surface in three-space.
