Now is the time to put these protections in place to save the Amelia Island tree canopy. With the explosion of new development, this is essential. All those who are concerned should attend to ensure that the new protections are passed.

These revisions are the next step in protecting our trees on Amelia Island. If you care about needless tree destruction, show up on May 15 to support these revisions.

Sadly, these very important meeting coincide with Fernandina Beach City Commission meetings therefore our Commissioners cannot attend. This is unfortunate!
