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. Tree removal work will be performed on eight acres adjacent to upper Pinebrook Road and lower Canyon Drive (from Buckboard to Canyon Drive Court), and Oak Brush removal work will be performed on two acres between Canyon Drive and Hitching Post (adjacent to Dan's Crest Trail). The objectives of these projects are fuel reduction and creation of fire breaks. Once started we expect that the larger project will be completed within 3-5 days and that the smaller project will be completed within 1-2 days. If you have any questions about this work, please send an email to David Geffen at email@example.com and Don Brownatdonb@utahskies.org. Please be on the lookout for the work crews and please use caution when driving near these work areas or using the trails near these work areas when work is being performed.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
