RESIDENTS MUST APPLY FOR THE TREE REMOVAL!

The HOA does NOT endorse or pre-approve any company for executing any type of service hired by residents. Approval is required to remove any tree, either dead or alive, whose trunk measures 4” or more in diameter when measured at the height of 4’ from the ground. Please read: Tree Removal Guideline Details>>

BRANCHES NEED A TRIM?

Property owners are permitted to trim their own trees and vegetation and engage in self-help by cutting back branches and roots of neighboring trees and vegetation to the property line WITHOUT needing permission from the HOA.  However, property owners must be careful when doing so.  They may not enter the tree owner’s property when engaging in self-help, and they must be careful not to weaken the tree as to cause damage to the tree owner’s property.  It is wise to get a professional arborist’s opinion if cutting and let their expertise guide your decision and also contract for routine inspection of your trees as well.
