As promised, we will be starting the cleanup of the common area trees tomorrow.  After a walkthrough of the green areas and trails by several members of the Board, including me, it is clear we have a lot trees severely damaged and/or dangerous to people or property. We will be making every effort to do a thorough job in our short time with the Tri-State Trees vendor.  The business has been sold and our pricing arrangement will only be honored for approximately 14 days.

Please brace yourselves for the number of trees that will be have to be cut down or cut back. It will be painful but prudent, as our experience through Sally has proven. The ARC Chair is being consulted. Several folks on the trails and backing up to the greenbelts have asked if they might plant more trees. Yes! As long as that tree would occur naturally here, your donation of or nurturing of trees is welcomed.

Two Board members, Spencer Burk and Greg Jonston, will be monitoring the Contractors as they move through the workload.  They could use some help for breaks and directing traffic.  If you would like to assist, please contact me. I will forward your information to Spencer. He will coordinate dates and times and locations and fill you in on the strategy we are employing.

I will check with them each day to see which streets they will be on and let you know if cars need to moved. Tomorrow will be an orientation with Tri State, then they will work along Gulf Beach Highway.  After that they will work on the nature trail at Lorikeet and work up from there.

More updates tomorrow.  
Susan M. Arnett, Herons Forest Property Owners Association, President
