- WIND DAMAGE IN ASHBURN FARM
The Association would like to thank everyone who has reported falling trees/limbs since Friday. Your patience and understanding during this situation was greatly appreciated. The Association is currently in triage mode and is assessing each individual situation. The staff and contractors are dealing with the most severe/dangerous issues first, but will be responding to each situation as quickly as possible. If you have spoken with someone at the Association, sent in an email, or the tree is blocking an Association sidewalk or path, we’ve got you on the list and are working as quickly as we are able.
If you have not reported damage to your property from a common area tree, please contact the Association Office at 703-729-6680, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
On properties where there is damage to a home or other structure from a common area tree, the Association is asking those property owners to contact their homeowners insurance provider and/or their own tree service to remove the tree from the home or structure. The Association will not remove trees that have fallen onto your home, deck, shed, etc. Virginia state law considers these incidents “acts of god”, and the tree or fallen debris becomes the property of the person whose property it fell onto, at the property line.
The Association will do its best to be a good neighbor, and will remove common area trees from fences with permission from the property owner. If there is good vehicle access, and our staff or contractors are doing similar work in the area, the Association is glad to help remove debris that fell from the common area onto your property. Please place the debris near the common area tree that fell, just outside of your property boundaries where it can be accessed. The Association will not haul away debris created by trees that originated from private or neighboring properties.
We appreciate your continued patience as the staff and contractors work to resolve all of the tree issues in the community!
- COMMON AREA SPRAYING
Crews will be on the property beginning 3/1 to spray turf applications to control grassy and broadleaf weeds (weather permitting). The spraying will continue for approximately 7-10 days. Notification flags will be placed near or on areas that have been treated to remind pedestrians, children, and those walking pets to stay out of treated areas until they have dried.
