STREET TREES


Homeowner & Association Responsibilities 


MAINTENANCE

The street trees that are planted in the easement along the roadways within Tartan Fields Golf Club Community Association are the property of the Association. The Association is responsible for maintenance of the street trees as the Association deems necessary.

MULCHING

Mulching of the street trees is the responsibility of the homeowner. Please see the following information regarding mulching from www.treesaregood.org:

As beneficial as mulch is, too much can be harmful. The generally recommended mulching depth is 2 to 4 inches (5 to 10 cm). Unfortunately, many landscapes are falling victim to a plague of over-mulching. “Mulch volcanoes” are excessive piles of mulch materials applied around the base of trees.


LEAF PICK-UP

A courtesy leaf pick-up is also conducted twice in the fall, the dates change each year which are posted prior to pick up. Early onset of inclement weather could delay the dates initially provided. Homeowners need to pile their leaves in the tree lawn by the curb. Leaves should be in the grassy area and not in the street. Residents are encouraged to self-manage their leaves if the association’s service conflicts with a desired time-frame.
