Amelia Island Tree Protection and Replacement Plan
Our native canopy has communal benefits that preserve health, safety and general well-being of the inhabitants of Amelia Island, including storm protection, stormwater storage and treatment, soil stabilization and strengthening, and serve to counter heat island effects.
The Amelia Island Tree Protection Working Group has completed its fact finding mission and has drafted an ordinance modifying Sections 37.02, 37.05, and Article 32 of the Land Development Code. Proposed changes to development regulations in Section 37.02 apply only to the unincorporated areas of Amelia Island and are intended to preserve and enhance the unique maritime forest which benefits the health, safety and general well-being of the inhabitants of Amelia Island.
