Mangrove Trimming and Permitting

A free inspection of your property is all that is needed to determine whether a permit is needed. If a permit is required, we can easily facilitate the process due to our Professional Mangrove Trimming Qualification (MTQ-001) and our 30 years of experience in the field of mangrove permitting and trimming.

Our maintenance trimming programs include removal of trash that may float onto your property, as well as removal of exotic, non-protected, or noxious vegetation, including vines which frequently colonize mangrove shorelines. We also provide free consultation for any waterfront issues that may arise on your property.

Our Letters of Recommendation Include the Following:

"Dear Ms. Baxter:
Thank you for taking time from your busy day to share your knowledge of Mangroves and wetland trees with our staff. Our Staff was impressed with all of the wetlands trees that were identified from only trunk remains. The information you provided about bark and sub bark characteristics was very educational and informative."
– Mary C. Figueira, Program Administrator, Environmental Resource Protection, Department of Environmental Protection
