Summary

Obviously, no one is recommending cutting down mangroves to sell, but environmental managers are working toward putting a price tag on the benefits they provide to help ensure that they are protected. Though the process is just beginning here, estimates from studies in other locations indicate that the 15,000 acres of mangrove forests surrounding Tampa Bay could be worth $75 to $225 million a year for the services they provide.
