    Hey guys:
    What kind of licensing do I need for basic maintenance (mowing, trimming, edging, blowing) in Orange County, Florida?

    You will need atl least a occupational license for Orange County. You can get this from the county tax collector office. If they have other specific requirements they usually will ask for it when you obtain your Occupational License.

    Florida doesn't play with this stuff and every county is different. Check with the county tax office and they will tell you all that is required in the county you plan on working in. And you need to do this for EACH county you plan on working in, doing in one won't get rights to all in the state. Don't forget the state, and especially workers comp, I know guys that lost it all and even got some jail time due to problems with workers comp....they are a real pain in Florida.
