Pinebrook Master Association and Pinebrook Homeowners Association have contracted with Summitt Forests of Ashland, Oregon to do fire prevention related work on two of our community owned properties.  Later in the summer or early in the fall, tree removal work will be performed on eight acres adjacent to upper Pinebrook Road and lower Canyon Drive, and Oak Brush removal work will be performed on two acres adjacent to Dan's Crest Trail between Canyon Drive and Hitching Post Drive.  The objectives of these projects are fuel reduction and creation of fire breaks.

Summitt Forests has agreed to take on individual homeowner fuel reduction project work while working here in Pinebrook, subject to the work being performed similarly to the work being performed on our community property and with the understanding that they do not offer any arborist services.  We believe that for those homeowners in our neighborhood that are looking to remove a moderate or large amount of dead trees and/or a large amount of Oak Brush that these services will be a very cost effective alternative to having the work performed by our local tree companies. Any work being done on a homeowner’s property will be subject to a contract being executed between the homeowner and Summitt Forests directly with all costs paid by homeowners directly to Summitt Forests.

If you are interested in having Summitt Forests evaluate the work on your property, please send an email as soon as possible to both David Geffen at and Don with some general information about your situation.  David and Don can share some additional information about the services to be provided if you have questions.  We will be aggregating the homeowner requests and will pass them on to Summitt Forests and then they will be in touch with you to discuss your needs.  Additionally, if you have any questions about the work to be performed on our community owned properties, please contact David and Don.


Dumpsters and wood chipper will be provided by the Pinebrook Master Association and Pinebrook Homeowners Association again this year from Saturday, May 25th to Sunday, June 2nd. They will be in the usual location in the parking lot of the Pinebrook Park. In the past few years, use of the dumpsters has increasingly been abused by non-residents, landscape companies, after-hour dumping in the parking lot (not in the dumpsters), and dumping of toxic and hazardous materials. Crews may implement additional screening and security measures this year to help control and manage the cleanup efforts. Continued abuse could ultimately lead to discontinuation of this highly valued service. Please:

1.) Do not invite your friends in neighboring communities to use Pinebrook’s dumpsters.

2.) All disposed materials must be placed in the dumpsters and wood stacked in marked locations for chipping. Do not dump truckloads of debris in the parking lot for the crews to pick up and dispose of in the dumpsters.

3.) If you hire a landscape company to help with spring cleanup, please make sure they are only disposing of your materials, not all their other customers’ materials.

4.) Do not dump anything toxic or hazardous! NO paint, paint rags, tires, propane tanks, chemicals, needles and medical waste, batteries, etc. Save those for Summit County’s Hazard Material Collection events instead.

5.) If you are unable to haul your trees or branches to the park to be chipped, you will need to contact a private chipping service or the Park City Fire District to sign up for their free mobile chipping service. Their schedule will fill quickly, so don’t delay. THE PHOA DOES NOT PROVIDE MOBILE CHIPPING SERVICES.

Invasive Weed Mitigation

The Summit County Cooperative Weed Management Area (Summit County CWM) in cooperation with the Summit County and Salt Lake Weed Control Departments, Park City, and Snyderville Basin Special Recreation District, have been awarded a competitive grant from the Utah State Department of Agriculture and Food (UDAF) to map and treat two state listed noxious weeds, garlic mustard and spotted knapweed.

Pinebrook Trail News and Updates

Pinebrook Trail News and Updates   Alf Engen TH:  The trail access to the Alf Engen Trail at the Pinebrook Park has been adjusted to keep trail users off the Gorgoza Mutual Water Company (GMWC) paved access road and work area.  The trail access now begins immediately to the southwest of the main parking lot (a new sign has been installed) and the trail travels through the field and then crosses the GMWC paved access road to connect to the previous TH.  Please do not walk on the GMWC paved access road (except to cross the access road, and then make sure to look for traffic) as heavy equipment is routinely operating in this area, and could be dangerous to pedestrians and pets.   Tall Oaks Circle TH:  Trail access to the Ecker Hill Trail from the Tall Oaks Circle Cul-de-sac has been modified as of November 11, 2018.  The trail access previously was up the driveway for 7475 Tall Oaks Circle, but we have constructed a new access trail that is located further west of the driveway.  Please look for the trailhead sign, and stay on the trail, as it parallels the driveway.  Please do not use the driveway in the future.   Creek Trail:  The Creek Trail was temporarily closed this summer while a pipeline was installed below the surface.  Many improvements were made to the trail and it is now open, but there are a few areas that still need work, so please use the trail with caution.   New Pinebrook Road TH to Creek Trail:  A new connection to the Creek Trail was constructed this fall east of the driveway for 7670 Pinebrook Road.  Please stay on the trail and do not walk down the driveway or on the homeowner’s property.

No hunting access via the Pinebrook Trail System

Just a reminder, using the private Pinebrook trail system to access the public hunting grounds in an area above Pinebrook is not allowed.  Signage has been posted reminding hunters of this, but please report violations to the Summit County Sheriff.  Thank you

Pinebrook Pool & Rec Center Initiative

Several years ago, plans were created for a private equity membership pool & recreation center in Pinebrook.  With the economic downturn, the project was put on hold.  Now there is a growing group of residents who would like to see this pool & rec center constructed. This is a private project and would not affect HOA dues. If interested, go to the pool intiative website, check out all the information (there are multiple tabs with a lot of information to answer your questions) and see what you think.  If you’re a member of the Pinebrook Master Association and you’d like to participate in this opportunity, join the list of interested parties by sending an email to
