Protecting our tree canopy
You'll find the tree permit application and process listed along with phone numbers to report anything that you see that might be shady (no pun intended).
Many people in the neighborhoods contact me when it's too late, about destroyed greenery and the developers and builders and their employees are to blame. People just don't know that you cannot destroy trees in Coconut Grove.
The other day, a guy fell 15 feet from atop a tree that he was cutting down. Tree Watch is looking into this, as it is on private property, but still not allowed to be destroyed.
To find out if a tree has a permit, you can call 305-416-1551 or visit: http://portal.miamigov.com/landmanagement
The main email address and phone number for Tree Protection is Email: EnvironmentalRes@miamigov.com or Phone: 305-416-1400.
This is for all of the City of Miami. Not just Coconut Grove.
If in doubt, please call or email (calling of course, is faster). You'll remain anonymous and you just might be saving a large part of our tree canopy.
I'll leave a link to TREE PROTECTION at the top of the Grapevine next to the other links and you can refer to it whenever you need it. It will link to the Planning and Zoning website.
