Worried About Your Trees?

This spring… has been especially gorgeous—with mild temperatures and lots of sunshine.  We’ve also had strong winds that have left us worrying about falling limbs and damage to our trees.

The good news is that we have a certified arborist working for the Village—Caroline Westfall. 

So before taking any action to remove trees, please reach out to Caroline at [email protected] or 502 643 3080 to schedule a free consultation to assess the health of your trees. Meeting with her will bring you confidence and comfort…and ensure that any action you’re considering makes sense for all of us.  Note: It’s much less expensive to have your trees professionally trimmed than to have them removed!

Protecting and expanding our tree canopy is a major goal for Brownsboro Village, and private property trees are essential to our Village. As we work to expand our tree canopy, our collective attention to both safety and aesthetics will make a wonderful difference for our community. 

If you have questions or concerns, contact me at 502 291 8943 or [email protected].

Trees Provide More Benefits than You Might Think!

    Did you know that trees…

  • cool neighborhoods, reducing utility bills
  • add value to our homes and neighborhood
  • promote outdoor activities and social interaction
  • provide homes for birds and animals
  • absorb excess rain and decrease air pollution
  • promote heart and overall health?

  We want to be proactive to ensure a healthy tree canopy and protect our property values. Thank you for your assistance!

Status of This Year’s Tree Giveaway (2023)

Currently, the ball is in the court of the nurserymen and women who grow the trees.  They decide when it’s appropriate to dig a given species.  Since our order has a diversity of species on it, we must wait until they dig all the species needed to compile it and ship it in its entirety.  It was also exceptionally dry up until a week or so, so their digging was further delayed by the dry soil conditions. (They don’t want to deliver a dry/prone-to-cracking rootball.) All this is to say that our order isn’t ready and has not shipped. But when it does, Brownsboro Village is at the top of our priority list.

The Process of Locating Utilities

When we got word from the nursery that digging would be delayed this year because of soil moisture, we opted to wait to call the Before U Dig utility locators so that their marks would be recent and visible when we need them to be rather than faded and mowed over. 

We told everyone it would be between Thanksgiving and Christmas when their trees would arrive, and it still will be. We’ll be in touch!”
