Contractors: We are taking proposals for brush-hogging our septic fields and the field behind the tennis court. If you are interested please read our Request for Proposal.


Homeowners: There will be a Chip-off for the year 2019 on Saturday June 1.

1. Bring all brush up to the side of the road, very close and convenient for a truck w/ chipper to drive up to. Brush too far away from the road cannot be picked up.

2. Place the thick end of the branch toward the road. This makes it easier to feed the chipper.

3. Branches cannot be more than 3 inches in diameter.

4. Refrain from bringing in soft, rotten, or extremely wet branches. They gum up and render the chipper inoperable.

5. Carefully choose where on the road you’d like to place the branches, because the chipper will spit the chips back out in generally the same spot.
