As many of you have probably noticed by now, we are missing some trees! There were 12 plum trees along the east side of Heydenreich that were infected with black knot fungus that needed to come down. Unfortunately, the landscaping company we hired at the beginning of the year had issues hiring workers and was unable to complete any of the projects we had discussed. One of our very own Buckingham Village neighbors, William, owns a tree removal business and gave us a very fair price and did an excellent job getting rid of the trees and grinding down the stumps for us. Thank you, William! These trees will be replaced on 10/22/21 with a mixture of Red Maple and Red Crab Apple trees similar to what you see along the west side of Heydenreich. In addition, William also removed the middle pear tree on the island on Bredenbury and trimmed up the other two pear trees as the three trees had grown together and were much too large for the island.
In other exciting news, with the addition of electrical at all four of our BV signs, we have a company lined up to install holiday lights for us this year! Lights and garland will be installed on all four signs with lights also on the trees and shrubs behind the two signs on Heydenreich and lights on the trees and shrubs in the middle of Bredenbury. We hope this will bring some fun holiday cheer this year!
We appreciate everyone’s patience with us this year as we start making the much overdue updates to our neighborhood. We’ve accomplished so much this year and have many more plans in the works. Keep a look out for more exciting landscaping updates to the signs and common areas in the spring!
