In November 2016, several dozen trees were planted around TRV by the Developer’s landscaper. Most of these were in rear yards. A few were in side yards for homes that have side yards. These trees were the ones that received light colored mulch instead of TRV standard, Java Brown. Several of these trees, particularly the Spruces, did not survive the winter:
Great news! We heard from the developer today that their landscaper will be returning in September to replace any trees they planted last year that have since died.
So between now and the replacement operation in September, please do not remove any dead spruce trees from the November 2016 planting. And if you have a dead tree from that batch that hasn’t been reported to Jascinda at Farmers, please do ASAP.
