What is the Greenbelt?
Sugarmill Woods was originally a cattle farm – hundreds of acres of pasture land. The developers decided the land needed trees. To create the woods that became Sugarmill, 1.2 million pine saplings were planted. With the guidance of a Florida naturalist, one third of the property was set aside, preserved as wildlife strips – or Greenbelt. The 5300 acres of Sugarmill Woods has 1700 acres that remain untouched – a piece of nature for every home site. It was a development breakthrough in Florida and in the United States, studied by urban planners. It is land occupied by our residents and shared with the flora and fauna native to the area.
No Florida development offers a feature quite like our Greenbelt.
