Manatee County is just percentage points from meeting a national standard for forest coverage, according to a study released by the county.

The county worked with Keep Manatee Beautiful, ESciences and several other government agencies on its first study of its urban tree canopy.

The five-year analysis, funded with a $10,000 grant from the Florida Urban and Community Forestry Grant Program and another $10,000 grant from KMB, used software modeling and aerial photographs to evaluate the tree canopy in unincorporated Manatee and the six municipalities in the county.
