Three Trees to be Removed from Canopy

Removal of three Historic Trees along Orange Ave. is the result of the 2018 Tree Survey completed in the Fall of 2018 by Paff Tree Service and Citrus County. The survey is a report on the health and integrity of the Historic Tree Canopy and updates the previous survey completed in 2002. A key part of the survey is to identify each individual tree, diagnose the issues associated with the tree, and develop a plan for the preservation of the tree and its contribution to the canopy. After the 2018 Survey, the Paff arborist placed a numbered metal tag on the road side of each canopy tree near the base to identify the tree. Anyone who would like a copy of the Paff Arborist's Survey Report prepared for Citrus County and Floral City Heritage Council can request one from Charla Bauer.

Of the 107 trees in the Historic Canopy of Trees, three have been designated for removal:

  • 8532 E. Orange Ave (Tree #15)
  • 8860 E. Orange Ave (Tree #48)
  • Aroostook (South)  (Tree #120)

The work on the trees was originally scheduled for June 19, 2019. Weather permitting, the work could be done any day now. Watch this site for more information and updates!

Please, watch for traffic delays on Orange Ave (Hwy 48) in Floral City when the work begins.
