FIRE SAFETY WORK TO BE PERFORMED IN PINEBROOK SOON; ARE YOU INTERESTED IN OUR CONTRACTOR DOING TREE OR SCRUB REMOVAL ON YOUR PROPERTY?
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 email@example.com and Don Brownatdonb@utahskies.org 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.
