message from Leaf & Limb on neighborhood trees

Greetings! My name is Basil Camu, and I am one of the owners of Leaf & Limb. I’m excited to announce that your HOA Board has contracted us to begin caring for the street trees in your community. They believe that proactively caring for your community’s trees will not only save money in the long run, but will increase the beauty and appeal of Carpenter Village over the coming years.

We want to create a healthy, happy canopy that cheerfully greets friends, family, and prospective neighbors when they arrive in Carpenter Village.

Beyond their good looks, trees provide many benefits to you and your community. They clean air, reduce pollution, provide shade in the hot summers, reduce electricity usage, absorb rain to help prevent flooding and provide a habitat for many important creatures and critters (including bats, which can eat over 1,000 mosquitoes in an hour!). They improve curb appeal, increase property values, facilitate a connected community, and generally help define the character of a neighborhood. While most assets depreciate in value over time, trees are one of the few infrastructure investments that become more valuable over time.

We will begin by treating nearly 400 trees for serious pest and disease issues. These treatments will begin in May and will span throughout the rest of 2018. They are completely safe, will not hurt your loved ones (including pets), and require absolutely no work on your part. Just enjoy the results.

Later this year we will remove street trees that have already been identified as dead or dying and will replace them with new trees and species. Beyond this, we have many other services planned to further improve the health of your trees, which include soil improvements with proper mulching, proper pruning, and more. Stay tuned for coming updates, as well as educational and community-involvement opportunities.

We are very excited at this opportunity to develop an ongoing relationship with you and your community. We look forward to becoming the caretakers of your trees. By producing healthy, happy trees we hope to enhance your living space by making it even more beautiful and more inviting than it already is.

Please let us know if you have any questions. We look forward to working with you!

Basil Camu
