FIRE SAFETY WORK IS EXPECTED TO BE PERFORMED DURING THE WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 30TH IN UPPER PINEBROOK

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 dgeffen.pinebrook@yahoo.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 dgeffen.pinebrook@yahoo.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.

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.
