The Landscape Committee has been working to create opportunities to enhance the Nellie Gail Ranch “urban forest”. Planting Association common areas is one focus, another has been to find ways to streamline the process for homeowners to plant trees on their own property. Homeowners may now take advantage of a new program where the Association will waive the $100 ARC Application and the $250 deposit fee for homeowner applications that solely consist of tree planting improvements and do not impact views. It is preferred that Eucalyptus trees be avoided due to fire risk of that species of tree. All applications will continue to be reviewed by the ARC to evaluate as to adherence with view standards. Contact the Association office for an application at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope you can benefit from this new program to add trees for shade and/or aesthetic beauty!
