The State of Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) regulates the permitting of non-native plant species for public and environmental protection. The permitting process previously known as Biomass Permitting controls the introduction, transportation of, and release of plants. Procedures are established to control various non-native plant species intended for plantings of two or more contiguous acres. Further details can be found on Florida Rule 5B-57.011, Annotated Code (FDACS-08381).
The premium that you pay for a Florida Non-Native Species Planting Permit Surety Bond is dependent on credit and the bond amount required.
