Mangrove Coordination

The Submerged Lands and Environmental Resources staff located in Tallahassee coordinate the implementation of this program for the department, district offices and delegated local governments. This includes interpreting and providing guidance on the statutory language, providing oversight of local governments that have been delegated to implement the program, and reviewing applications from persons who wish to be designated as professional mangrove trimmers.  Please send requests to become a professional mangrove trimmer (PMT) to SLERC@dep.state.fl.us.
