Mangroves are an important ecological component in Florida. They serve as a nursery for fish, their dense underground roots help bind soils, their above ground roots slow water flows and promote sediment deposits which minimize coastal erosion. There are three types of native mangroves in Florida: red, black, and white. Each species reacts differently to trimming and if done incorrectly can result in their death.
Because of their importance, mangroves are protected by Florida Statute 403, which provides strict regulations for their maintenance and removal. These regulations often require a permit be obtained for mangrove work to be done and all removal permits require that the work be done by a PMT (Professional Mangrove Trimmer).
