Regarding the Problems with Street Trees in TVO1

The TVO 1 Board requested some information from Howard County regarding the dead and dying street trees in TVO. The county representative’s response is below along with a Board recommendation.

County: As you have probably noticed, we currently have a crew removing several trees in the area now. As far as trimming goes, we are on a 10 to 12 year cycle and this area was last trimmed 6/15.
If we can get a crew in here any sooner, we’ll certainly try. We have 12 employees to maintain over 300,000 street trees. Needless to say we are stretched pretty thin and Covid-19 hasn’t helped. Thank you,

Board suggestion: it is suggested that homeowners continue to use SeeClickFix on the county’s website to request service for DEAD trees, as they eventually present a danger. The Board has approached the county requesting some selected trimming to clear branches obstructing the street lights in some areas, given that general trimming will probably not be occuring in the near future per the county’s response above.

Avoid Loud Noises Before 8am and After 8pm
TVO I Neighbors,

As summer approaches and we all start maintaining our yards again, we’d like you all to consider your potential to disturb neighbors with loud consistent noises.

To that end, please avoid creating loud consistent noises before 8 AM and after 8 PM. If you hire landscapers or contractors, please tell them to avoid the use of loud tools to that 12-hour period. If you do the work yourself, please limit the use of loud tools to the same period.

Thank you,
Adam Sharp
TVO I Acting President

Replacement of Street Trees Update
In response to questions to the Board regarding the replacement of the street trees removed in the last couple of months the county replied to our query:
After the trees and stumps are removed, the locations are entered on the tree replacement list.  Depending on funding, the replacements could take a few years to be planted.

Thank You to Fall 2019 Picnic Sponsors!
The Board would like to thank our sponsors for the picnic:
our local Harris Teeter at Turf Valley Towne Center,
Ace on Rt. 40 just outside our neighborhood,
and Yogi Castle at 10132 National Pike.
