The 2020 Tree work has begun. You will see Growing Earth around Pinecrest this week as they complete the work we have approved for 2020. We have several other items that will not be done this year, but will be done in early 2021.
If you look around and wonder why nothing is being done about that appliance sitting there, or that tree limb that fell down, or trash strewn all over – don’t assume we know about it. Tell us! You can report things that need attention on this website, or you can simply email the board.
We don’t have people patrolling the neighborhood, so unless another resident has seen and reported the issue, it’s likely the board and our hired management company, TWC, doesn’t know about it.
Except the broken lights. We know all about those and are having difficulty getting Dominion Power to come and fix them. We are still working on that. We have around 16 non-functioning lights throughout Pinecrest.
We also know about these things and have them on our list to be fixed
- The broken railing on the Tot Lot behind Cloudcroft and Antiqua
- The bridge to that same Tot Lot needs replacement
- A broken bench near the Cloudcroft Tot Lot
- Another broken bench near the Antiqua/Emerald Heights Tot Lot
- A sink hole and broken glass behind Antiqua
- The trash being dumped around the trail behind Lofty Heights near Pinecrest Rd.
The board has approved the tree work for 2020. The remaining items will be done in early 2021. We only had enough in our budget to complete the Priority 1 (safety issue) tree work for this year. Next year we will complete the Priority 2 (property damage) and Priority 3 (Nuisance) tree work.
This is the list of work we plan to complete this year. The work is being scheduled for the next couple of months.

We have the arborist’s report. We have around 30-40 areas where a tree needs to be removed, or a group of trees need to be pruned. We are focusing on trees that pose a danger to people, such as dead trees or limbs hanging over streets sidewalks and houses. We are also planning to prune trees back from over the tops of houses.
If you see a tree that you think needs work, please email the board and we will add that to the list for review by the arborist.
When the work is scheduled, we will make another post with the approximate dates when the work will be performed.
Due to the closure of the Southgate Community Center last Wednesday, January 8th, the board meeting could not be held. We are tentatively scheduling this for February 12th. Look for the Event once this is finalized.
Update: The meeting was not rescheduled. The next Board meeting will be Wednesday, March 11th 6:30pm at Southgate Community Center.
All of the tree work we had planned for 2019 has been completed. For 2020, we will do our annual walk-through of the property with an arborist once the trees leaf out in the spring.
In the meantime, if you have a tree issue, please report it via email to the board.
We have had a couple of tree companies survey our property and provide estimates for tree pruning and removal. As usual, we cannot afford to do all the work in one year, but we will be starting this work soon.
As we have further updates, we will post them here. We are still in the award phase and will likely need several more weeks to arrive at a decision and sign the contract.
