The Tree can be Pruned or Removed

Given the responses entered it appears that the required conditions for Florida Statute 163.045 have been met. As such, the tree can be pruned or removed without prior notice, permitting, or mitigation. If you had any questions or were uncertain about any of the criteria described earlier, it may be best to work with your local government to prevent potential litigation. 

This decision tool was developed by the Florida Chapter of the International Society of Arboriculture. It was not created by an attorney and is not providing a legal opinion, and is not offering any service that can, by law, be performed only by an attorney.
