Trimming of Pear Trees

September 25th, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

At the annual meeting in June, we agreed to trim all of the aristocrat pear trees in community if there were no unexpected expenses. We made it though the summer with no surprises, so the trimming will be scheduled over the next few weeks.

There have been a lot of broken limbs this summer due to garbage trucks and other trucks hitting the trees. To help address this problem and to make the sidewalks clear for pedestrians, the canopies will be trimmed up to 8′ in height. The last time the trees were trimmed was December 2008. This typically needs to be done every 3 years, so we got an extra year out of our last trim.

When the trimming is scheduled, another message with the specific date(s) will be published.

    The commercial tree trimming certainly looks nice . . . what is the charge to the association?
    This could be prolonged to 5 or 7 years if each homeowner would snip the tiny branches that sprout out. This is only needed once or twice a year . . . when other yard work is being done. Thank you for setting the trimming up.
    The neighborhood is looking nice in its maturity.

    Jane, the reason we decided to trim all trees at the same time is because that’s the only way too keep a consistent appearance across the entire neighborhood. Also, if the trees aren’t trimmed properly, they can split and die. It’s just too much to expect each homeowner to know how to do this properly and consistently. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
