Volunteers Needed for Tree Planting This Weekend

*******THE WHIPS HAVE ARRIVED…COME GET YOURS TO PLANT!

NRPA staff is here from 10:00am-3:00pm to hand out trees, pass out instructions and answer your questions.******

The National Recreation and Parks Association is donating 200 whips (white oaks and Green sapling of apple treesycamores) to the HOA to be planted as part of our earth day efforts.  The locations for planting are in the no-mow areas behind Frame Square, Iredell Square, and Summerbrooke Pool, up the hill, backing up to the Greenway. The no-mow areas were established to increase habitats for insects and wildlife, reduce air and noise pollution from mowers, provide a buffer from the highway, restore natural landscapes for exploring, promote sustainable landscaping, and reduce heat island effects.

Volunteer to plant at your leisure this weekend. Areas will be marked where planting should take place. Click on PLANTING MAP for location details. The whips are very small and will be easy to transport and plant. All you need is a small shovel or spade.  It’s as easy as 1-2-3…dig the hole, plant the whip, and fill the hole with dirt and compact.  Watering is helpful, but not necessary.  Planting can be done on your own during the time frame allotted.

We are asking students and families to participate in this endeavor. Please sign up here: www.signupgenius.com/go/20f054bafa92ea4ff2-volunteers

These whips will be available beginning Friday, April 27th for planting over the weekend. Whips can be picked up at the Nature Center on Friday or Saturday morning on the back patio, adjacent to the tennis courts.  NRPA will have staff at the Nature Center on Friday, from 10:00am-3:00pm to hand out trees, pass out instructions and answer your questions.

 

Any questions, please contact Sarah@broadlandshoa.com

Wind Damage in Broadlands

UPDATE 3.9.18….
The Association would like to thank everyone who has reported fallen trees/limbs and signs in the common areas since the onset of the storm. The Association has assessed each individual situation and the staff and contractors are dealing with these issues in order of priority, where the most dangerous/severe situations are taken care of first.

On properties where there is damage to a home or other structure from a common area tree, the Association is asking those property owners to contact their homeowners insurance provider and/or their own tree service to remove the tree from the home or structure. The Association will not remove trees that have fallen onto your home, deck, shed, etc. Virginia state law considers these incidents “acts of god”, and the tree or fallen debris becomes the property of the person whose property it fell onto, at the property line. The Association will do its best to remove common area trees from fences with permission from the property owner.

We appreciate your continued patience as the staff and contractors work to resolve all of the storm issues in the community!
