Bradford Pears - Friend or Foe?

The summer is here, and everyone loves to see those big white blooms on all of the Bradford Pear trees during the spring. Bradford trees look beautiful in the spring, but they have their issues. Their most significant issue is that they are subject to "sheering". This is a condition where a giant section of the tree simply separates from the main trunk of the tree. This occurs because Bradford Pears generally DO NOT Have a strong central trunk. Consequently, the tree becomes top heavy, high winds literally cause the tree to sheer.

Autumn Leaves

With Autumn just upon us, it is critical to reiterate some basic rules regarding leaves and tree limbs. You CANNNOT simply leave dead tree limbs and leaves on your sidewalk or street. Just recently, one townhome owner left a large 6 foot long tree branch in the street and it sat there for four weeks. Leaves must be gathered and placed in bags - they MUST be placed for collection on TUESDAYS only since these are considered RECYCLABLES. Tree limbs and branches must be cut and bundled.


Red Alert! Post Lantern Alert!

Post Lantern Alert! Before you go to bed this evening, step outside - enjoy the warm evening breeze, and take a look at your outside lighting fixtures. If you are a townhome owner, take a CLOSE look at your Post Lantern. Is the brass fixture completed oxized and rust-like in appearance? Is the light working? Be forewarned, if either the fixture is rusted or not operating, you will receive a citation during the month of April. For the townhome owners, the Post Lantern is the primary form of lighting within the community.

 Based on residents' efforts, Loudoun County officially approved a special parking district for the three VDOT owned streets located adjacent to the Broad Run High School. These THREE streets: Millay Court, Winthrop Court, and Howe Drive are now governed by a special parking ordinance that is ONLY in effect during school days.
