Invasive Plant Management Permit
The Bureau of Invasive Plant Management – A State Permit is required for the control of any aquatic vegetation pursuant to the rules of Chapter 62C-20 of the Florida administrative Code

Orange County Environmental Protection Division

Within Orange County, Florida, a lakeshore homeowner is entitled to vegetation free access corridor of 20% or 30 feet of total linear shoreline, whichever is greater, without a permit. If you want to remove vegetation outside of the access corridor then a Lakeshore Protection Permit (LSP) is required. This permit will allow you to remove nuisance and exotic vegetation; however, replanting of beneficial native species may be required to meet 80% coverage of native aquatic vegetation. The LSP permit will allow you to maintain the shoreline clear of nuisance and exotic vegetation as long as you sustain the obligatory 80% native plant coverage. Note that certain trees and endangered plants cannot be removed from the shoreline. Generally boat docks are to be placed in the access corridor. This permit will allow the homeowner to clear below the Normal High Water Elevation (NHWE). The Conservation Easement above the NHWE is now included in this permit and requires the same replanting requirements.

Native Florida Vegetation Commonly Planted

Sand Cordgrass (Spartina bakeri)

Pickerel Weed (Pontederia cordata)

Giant Bulrush (Scirpus californicus)

Duck Potato (Sagittaria lancifolia)

Golden Canna (Canna flaccida)
