Key West Urban Forester. Karen DeMaria and master gardeners Donna and Darrell Dye inspecting a gumbo limbo tree planted during a planting at the Sigsbee Charter School.

A recent study by the City of Key West with a grant made possible by the U.S. Forest Service and the Florida Division of Forestry identified government facilities within the city of Key West as having only 19 percent tree canopy coverage. The island overall has almost twice as much shady space. Now the City and civilian volunteers are helping the Navy raise the bar by planting trees on Navy property.
