Forest Ridge is blessed with a richness of mature trees that the developer took great pains to preserve. Some of the majestic oaks have been here for hundreds of years. Many of us have moved to this neighborhood to enjoy this unique suburban environment. It has now come to the attention of the board that some residents have removed every tree on their lot, even removed trees from our common grounds, completely changing the landscape of that part of the neighborhood. This has resulted in the highest number of complaints than any other single subject. Homeowners are concerned that the value of their homes will be severely affected if any additional lots are denuded of their natural forest settings.
Only the Board can decide to remove trees from any common area. If you are concerned about a tree in the common areas, please email the Trees Chair at email@example.com. Removal of trees from the common area may result in legal action and heavy cost to replace the lost trees.
Although there are no restrictions regarding the removal of trees from your own property, the Board asks that you use restraint when removing trees. Remember that the trees on your property add to its value and to the value of your neighbors' properties as well. Enjoy your trees and keep them healthy! Thank you.
