Mangroves are tropical plants adapted to wet soil and saltwater. There are more than 50 species of mangroves in the world, and three of them are native to Florida. While mangroves contribute significantly to the economy of South Florida and Palm Beach County, sometimes they become overgrown. At Zimmerman Tree Service, we’re Certified Arborists offering mangrove trimming services in Palm Beach County and beyond.
About Florida Mangroves
The three species of mangroves native to Florida are:
- Red Mangroves – Rhizophora Mangle
- White Mangroves – Laguncularia Racemosa
- Black Mangroves – Avicennia Germinans
Mangroves assist in protecting water quality and clarity by trapping and cycling various organic materials, chemical elements, and important nutrients in the coastal ecosystem. Not to mention, they also serve as storm buffers by reducing wind and wave action at shallow shorelines. The role of mangroves in South Florida is not to be undermined. That being said, the State of Florida regulates the removal and trimming of mangroves in certain areas. At Zimmerman, our state authorized mangrove trimmers can help you better understand the rules and regulations put in place regarding mangroves and other exotic vegetation.
