Save the Date: A Grand Discussion on Grand Oak Trees

Learn how grand oak trees help strengthen the foundation of our community

Grand oaks and other large trees are a hot topic that can sometimes cause confusion for residents throughout Hillsborough County due to restoration, removal, and replacement regulations. Taking a deep dive into understanding the complexity and nature of these requests can help explain how these trees make such an important contribution to our community.

About Grand Oaks
When a tree reaches Grand Oak status, it's one of the largest and oldest specimens of its kind in our area. It has withstood decades of development, deforestation, windstorms, and hurricanes, to prove that it is one of the hardiest and sturdiest trees of its species.

On Wednesday, Sept. 12, from 7 to 8 PM, join Joe Gross, Natural Resources manager with Hillsborough County Development Services, to learn about the beauty, nostalgia, enhancement of property values, and benefits to wildlife that grand oaks and other trees offer to our community during an educational presentation and Q&A at the Bloomingdale Regional Public Library in Valrico.

General questions about Grand Oak Regulations can be directed to Hillsborough County Natural Resources by calling (813) 272-5600, ext. 5, option 1.
