Trees

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.

The Hamlet generally does not trim branches or limbs near homes. See FAQs below for exceptions!

Tree FAQs

 Homeowners are responsible for trimming tree limbs and branches extending over their property line. Limbs/branches from adjacent properties (including common ground) can be trimmed back to your property line.

We highly recommend that you first contact the property owner to discuss how the limb will be cut back and make every effort to maintain the health of the tree during the process. Consider hiring a professional!

Although the Hamlet generally does not trim branches or limbs from our trees over your property, there are a couple of exceptions:

  • Branches or limbs which are  taller than the roofline and are a danger to life or property as determined by a certified arborist.
  • Branches, limbs or other growth that impedes access to backyards via the common ground.

Most trees near your home will be maintained by the Hamlet Cluster, if they are not on private property (another homeowner’s land). If you are concerned about a tree near your property contact the Hamlet to request having it reviewed by our arborist.
