Mangroves

 

Mangrove trimming is regulated by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and local jurisdictions which have delegated authority in accordance with The 1996 Mangrove Trimming and Preservation Act (403.9321 - 403.9333 F.S.).  Manatee County has not been granted delegated authority by the FDEP and therefore Mangrove areas are regulated as any other wetland area in accordance with LDC Section 719.
