Clear Recovery Zone Vegetation Requirements, and Review of Current Tree Pruning and Maintenance Practices for Landscape, Urban and Rural Areas within the Right of Way

The objectives of this project are to: (1) Review policy, procedure, clear zone vegetation criteria guide, and the Maintenance Guide Handbook for tree maintenance and pruning, and make recommendations on improvements to these guides based on an assessment of past Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) plantings; (2) Revise the statewide Maintenance Guide Handbook on tree maintenance and pruning to include a section on rural roadway tree pruning; (3) Develop and conduce a 1/2 day technology transfer program (and associated supporting materials) at four locations to disseminate research results and introduce the information in the new handbook.
