With all the exotic and invasive species that have been introduced to Florida over the years it's not long before they find there way into our natural areas. In a very short period of time these areas can become overrun with invasive species such as: Brazilian Pepper, Melaleuca, Carrot wood, Rosewood and Primrose willow just to name a few. These invasive species are harmful to our natural areas as they can quickly form dense mono-cultures that displace and out compete our native vegetation. As stewards of our land we are committed to properly removing and controlling these invasive species so they don't return. Once these invasive plants are removed native plants will again have a chance to thrive.
Inspections, Treatments, & Monitoring
We conduct regularly scheduled inspections, monitoring, and treatments of wetlands and preserves to maintain compliance in accordance with your local county and governmental agency requirements. Inspections and or treatments a generally conducted on a quarterly basis. Treatments are conducted to ensure control of invasive species. This is accomplished by first cutting and removing all invasive trees from the site. Secondly selective herbicide applicatios are made to the stumps that remain to ensure there is no regrowth. Whether these governmental agencies are still conducting monitoring of these areas or you have met the required success criteria, our staff can provide the continued maintenance you need to stay in compliance:
- Comprehensive Monitoring Reports Completed & Sent to All Agencies
- Selective Control of Invasive Species by Herbicide or Manual Removal
- Buffer Plantings and Wetland Restoration to Acheive Success Criteria

If you have been informed that you need to report to SWFWMD, Sarasota County, DEP, or any other regulatory agency, contact us today. We can begin your reporting process immediately and keep you in compliance.
