A Teachable Moment: Caring for Our Trees

This week's storm took down many large tree limbs in the community, as can be seen by looking around the property. Failure to prune and remove dead and dying trees in Princeton Landing has been a long-running discussion on this blog. For the community, this recent weather is another teachable moment. The Association should be more aggressive about budgeting funds for tree removal and pruning. There are many old trees on the property, including some that are weak and overgrown. Alert residents shouldn't have to plead with landscape committee members and management to remove dead and dying trees from around their homes. Well-maintained trees are less dangerous in weather like this.
