Mangrove Tree Trimming, Installation, & Management


The mangrove is a tropical or subtropical plant adapted to life on various substrates in fluctuating tidal conditions. They are able to grow in fresh water; however, their physiological adaptations for saline water reduce their ability to compete with plant species adapted to freshwater conditions. In Florida, the 1996 Mangrove Trimming and Preservation Act protects mangroves from unauthorized removal and severe trimming.

Here at ESU, we are certified and have years of experience in mangrove tree trimming in Vero Beach, FL, and the rest of our beautiful state. Call on us for expert mangrove installation, management, and trimming on your property.

Florida Mangroves

Throughout the world, there are more than 50 species of mangroves. Florida is home to three endemic varieties:

  • Red Mangrove (Rhizophora mangle)
  • White Mangrove (Laguncularia racemosa)
  • Black Mangrove (Avicennia germinans)

The northward distribution of these species is limited by the intensity and duration of cold weather. White mangroves are intolerant of freezing conditions. However, red and black mangroves are much more tolerant of cold weather if their root systems are effectively protected. Neither of these varieties typically exceeds six feet in height due to freeze decrement--the loss of freeze-affected branches. Red and black mangroves are found growing sporadically along the northern Gulf Coast of Florida.
