Trimming Trees and Shrubs
Sump Pump Maintenance Checklist
Please remember that we're all responsible for pruning our sidewalk trees, to allow people to safely walk underneath them! Pittsfield Township confirmed that lot owners are responsible and liable for any personal injury caused to pedestrians by low-hanging tree limbs while walking on the sidewalk. It's suggested that you trim any tree in front of your
home to allow for at least a 6 foot clearance so that a person with an umbrella can walk without difficulty. For more information on best times and practices for pruning trees and shrubs, check out this collection of articles.
Keep your sump pump in good working order by printing off this helpful maintenance checklist. In our neighborhood a working sump pump can make the difference
between a dry basement and one filled with rainwater and runoff!

Pittsfield Township Snow Removal Ordinance
According to the Township we're required to remove snow from our sidewalks within 24 hours of a snow event or risk getting ticketed. If you need help clearing your driveway and sidewalk,
please consider calling our own Lake Forest Highland resident Todd Paron, owner of a local snow removal company. You can reach Todd at firstname.lastname@example.org or give him a call at 995-5575.
