Amelia Island's tree canopy has communal benefits that preserve the health, safety and general well-being of those residing on Amelia Island, including storm protection, stormwater drainage and treatment, soil stabilization and strengthening, and serving to counter-heat island effects.
In May 2021, the Amelia Island Tree Protection Working Group completed its five-year mission in drafting a new Tree Protection Ordinance, modifying the existing Ordinance passed in 2008, as well as modifying Section 37.02, 37.05 and Article 32 of the Land Development Code.
