Cluster Tree Policies

The Tree Survey

Every three years the Hamlet will hire a certified arborist to review the common ground trees throughout Hamlet Cluster. Trees identified as requiring our attention will be graded based on their condition and the urgency of recommended actions. Each year the Hamlet will work with contractors to address the most serious issued identified by the tree survey.

Trees not listed as a priority on the survey, but which indicate a concern, may be evaluated and removed or trimmed at any time.

Private Property & Tree Limbs/Branches

The Hamlet Cluster generally does not trim branches near homes with the following exceptions:

  1. Branches or limbs which are taller than the roofline and present a danger to life or property as determined by a certified arborist or board approved tree professional.
  2. Branches, limbs or other growth that impedes access to backyards via common ground.
  3. View RA's DRB guidelines for information (this applies to trees on your property)
