Floral City Heritage Council Summer News
Historic Trees during Storm Season
Along the Historic Avenue of Oaks, please contact Frank Peters ([email protected] or [email protected]) if you have any damage to historic trees that you need to be addressed. Frank has contacts with the certified arborists who help care for those trees. The Citrus County Road Maintenance department take care of all other trees that fall in the roadways. We don’t have to worry about the 3 dead trees reported on the recent Tree Survey, though. According to Jim Sterling, Director of Citrus County Road Maintenance, PAFF Tree Service will be removing the dead trees on June 19, 2019. Please be aware this will affect traffic on Orange Avenue.
