For decades, this land was part of the Deseret Ranch. And under the superb management of the ranch, the land flourished. It just made sense that if you wanted your cattle to thrive, you would do whatever you could to help the environment thrive.
In Tavistock, Deseret Ranch felt it had found a kindred spirit: an organization with a near-obsessive approach to planning and a deep sense of responsibility for Central Florida.
At Sunbridge, we’re committed to the vision of a community that lives in harmony with nature — that embraces the call to do more for our wildlife, water and climate. It’s a big promise. Which is why we’re working in partnership with the Sustainable Floridians Benchmarking and Monitoring Program at the University of Florida, University of Central Florida, Life Soils, The Nature Conservancy, Toho Water Authority, Cherrylake and the OUTSIDE Sustainable Landscapes Collaborative in five key areas:
Water quality preservation
Water resource conservation
Renewable energy & efficiency
digging for treasure
A huge oak tree is one of nature’s most valuable works of art. That’s why we’re in the course of preserving and relocating over 150 mature trees. The whole process, from selection to pruning to digging and relocating, can take well over a year. But it’s worth it.
