Care of trees is homeowner responsibility in Timber Ridge Villas:
Each Owner shall properly water, maintain and replace all trees and landscaping on the Owner’s Lot — 2008 Declaration
Home owners are required to maintain trees in healthy condition, not obstructing sidewalk or streets. The bylaws require of every lot:
at least two trees with a minimum of a 2.5 inch caliper measured 6 inches above the ground — 2008 Declaration
When a tree dies, lot owners do not need AC approval to replace it with:
- the same type of tree in the same location.
- a pre-approved tree type in the same location.
Lot owners DO need AC approval however, to remove-without-replacement or to replace it with a type of tree not on the list. If removing without replacing, make sure at least two trees still remain.
The pre-approved tree list (which comes from our master landscaping plan) is:
- Red Sunset Maple
- Green Vase Zelkova
- Shumard Oak
- Greenspire Linden
- Black/Tupelo Gum
- Serbian Spruce
- White Pine
- Norway Spruce
- Canaert Juniper
- Vanderwolf’s Pyramid Pine
- Oklahoma Redbud
- Crimson Cloud Hawthorn
- White Flowering Dogwood
Individual AC approval is required if a lot owner wishes to:
- add a new tree
- move a tree
- change type of tree to any type not on the pre-approved list
- remove an existing tree without replacing it
Use the AC form to request approval.
