Dunedin, FL Tree Trimming & Tree Removal Service
Located in Pinellas County, Dunedin, FL, reflects its Scottish origins. With its unobstructed views and lack of congestion, Dunedin combines the amenities of a city with a relaxed lifestyle.
Named Dunedin in honor of Dun Eideann, the Scottish Galeic name for Scotland’s capital of Edinburgh, the city traces its roots to the 19th century. Pronounced Dun-eden, the city incorporated in 1899. Local lore maintains that Dunedin opted for incorporation so it could enact laws to control farm pigs running rampant throughout the settlement.
The city’s downtown was once the site of cotton fields and citrus trees. Dunedin became one of Florida’s chief trading centers after early settlers built a dock big enough to accommodate schooners and sloops, the trading vessels of the day. At one point, the city was home to the largest sailing fleet in Florida. Although Dunedin is no longer a chief seaport, the wharf remains a vital part of the community.
Dunedin played a critical role in the Pacific arena in World War II as the primary production site of the military’s amphibious landing craft, the Alligator tractor. The Pram sailboat racer and frozen orange juice concentrate also originated in Dunedin.
Today, the downtown features historic homes on brick streets as well as waterfront condominiums. The public school system has four elementary, one middle and one high school. There are two private schools, two charter schools and one Catholic school.
