Tree Trimming Time in Harpeth Trace

tree-trimming

Harpeth Trace is getting a haircut – and it’s a much needed one, at that! The HTSA Board recently reviewed quotes from several companies to trim, and in some cases remove, low-hanging trees over the main drive from the common areas. Winter is approaching, and these limbs and hanging trees become a danger to travel in Tennessee’s freezing rain episodes.

Today – Wednesday, Dec. 10 – is the day! Please take care and be patient if you are delayed by the good folks with Price Tree Care, who are providing the service. They will be working all day, and may occasionally have to stop traffic on Harpeth Trace Drive. It will be worth the hassle to know these trees won’t be falling on our heads come January.

And of course, this is Nashville, and it wouldn’t be Nashville if our tree trimmer weren’t – in his words – the next super star of Country Music. There’s even song about it on his video page (“I traded my chainsaw / for one last chance …”). You heard it here first, folks!

Orlando Stricklen - Nashville's next new star?

Big thanks to new Board member Schatzi Hagemen, who has hit the ground running with taking over landscaping responsibilities. We’re thankful to get this work organized before winter. 😉

Harpeth Trace Picnic 2014!

The Annual Picnic is right around the corner! The event this year is Saturday, Sept. 20, starting at 4pm. Catered food from Jim N’ Nicks will be served shortly thereafter. Residents are invited to bring games, music, whatever you feel makes a picnic! Anyone who would like to organize related events earlier in the day is invited to do so. We have the shelter reserved all day.

As in previous years, we will be at shelter #5 at Edwin Warner Park.

The picnic has been super popular and a great way to meet and network with neighbors. We hope this year will be bigger than ever. In order for us to plan our catering appropriately, please RSVP!
