On May 20, 2009 the City of Stuart
officially adopted one of the six native trees featured in the Treasure Coast Urban Reforestation Project.
The 12' Gumbo Limbo
specimen, donated by Botanics Wholesale
of Palm City, was planted in City Hall Park overlooking the St. Lucie River.

Gumbo Limbo is a perfect addition to the native coastal habitat in City
Hall Park, framed by a canopy of native Live Oaks and Sabal Palms
overlooking the St. Lucie River. The location was selected to provide
additional shade for the picnic tables.
The City of Stuart is a proud participant and supporter of The Reclamation Project.
