He is well versed in Florida statutes regarding mangrove trimming and will lawfully trim mangroves, assisting homeowners in their quest for a beautiful waterfront property that also preserves important ecosystems.
I was born in Cocoa, Florida and currently live in Melbourne. Florida is my home and I have always enjoyed the beauty of Brevard County's waterfront shores. Trimming mangroves along Florida's East Coast waterways is some of my favorite work as an arborist. I'm very hand's on...I don't just supervise mangrove trimming, I actually trim the mangroves myself.
Understanding Florida's Mangrove Protection Laws
If you've been told that it's against the law to trim mangroves in Florida, that's a misconception. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) enforces statutes regarding proper trimming of mangroves.
If the mangroves are not trimmed in compliance with the statutes, both the property owner and the non-qualified trimmer can be fined thousands of dollars by the FDEP. The property owner may further be required to mitigate the loss of the mangroves, costing thousands more. These steep fines are in place to deter illegal removal and defoliation of mangroves. The State of Florida is serious about protecting the mangroves and mangrove ecosystems.
Professional Mangrove Trimmers (PMTs) are individuals that the FDEP recognizes as qualified to properly trim mangroves. Hiring a qualified Professional Mangrove Trimmer ensures that the mangroves are trimmed in compliance with Florida's statutes.
