Mangrove Installation / Trimming & Management

Mangroves are tropical and subtropical plants that are adapted to life on various substrates in fluctuating tidal conditions. They can grow in freshwater, however, their physiological adaptations for saline waters lessen their ability to
compete with plant species adapted to freshwater conditions. Their distribution northward is limited by the length and
intensity of cold weather with the black and red mangroves being somewhat tolerant of cold weather if their root systems
are protected. White mangroves are much less tolerant of freezing conditions. There are more than 50 species of mangroves found throughout the world. Three species of mangroves are native to Florida: red mangrove (Rhizophora mangle), black mangrove (Avicennia germinans) and white mangrove (Laguncularia racemosa). Both black and red mangroves are found growing sporadically along the northern Gulf coast of Florida, generally not exceeding six ft. in height due to freeze decrement (loss of freezeaffected branches).

Mangroves are protected from unauthorized removal and severe trimming in Florida by the 1996 Mangrove Trimming and Preservation Act. ESU has years of experience and certification to properly install, trim and manage mangroves throughout the state.
