Sarasota Awarded $55,000 Grant to Help City’s Trees Flourish

The Giving Coast

The City of Sarasota has been awarded the 2020 Managing Community Forests Grant, which will enable staff to inventory trees throughout the city, identify diseased and dangerous trees for removal and plant new ones in low-income areas. Sarasota was the first-place recipient of the $55,000, three-year grant from the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. “The City of Sarasota recognizes the importance of trees as a community resource and has been committed to protecting and preserving them,” said Senior Arborist Mark Miller. “This grant will allow us to better manage our urban canopy and add even more trees, along with all of the health and economic benefits they provide.”
