NOTE: Quality Tree Care crews will be on site Thursday, November 2, to perform tree work that we have contracted.


QTC Arborist David Whitt will be on site in October or November to perform a community wide, common area assessment of dead/dying/dangerous trees as well as limbs that must be removed where blocking view of HOA light posts, street signs and other cautionary signs.


Residents who know they have tree work they need performed within their front or back yards are encouraged to make an appointment by calling Quality Tree Care, Inc directly.  Do not submit those requests through the Grounds & Landscaping Committee mail box. Property owners are expected to maintain their own landscaping and care for trees at their own expense.

The Grounds Committee has a new email address:
