Crane Island Tree Health Assessment and Inventory (December 2006 – ongoing)
Nassau County, Florida Crane Island, located along the inter-coastal waterway in Nassau County, Florida is currently owned by a private development firm. This firm requested a tree inventory and health assessment be provided for all island trees in response to public concern over the development of the island and to assuage concerns that proper mitigation would not be provided for impacts to trees. ESI certified arborists conducted a 100% tree inventory and health assessment of approximately 6,000 trees and provided the client a report of our findings. This information will be used as a tool to prevent impact to healthy and/or more valuable trees when designing a site plan for the property.
