Tree Trim and Removal

Your Board has received comments recently regarding the alarming number of dead or obviously dying pine and aspen trees in Discovery.  


While we have always taken pride in maintaining as much of the natural beauty of Discovery as possible, trees that have reached the end of their lives not only present a fire danger for our neighborhood, but also contribute to safety, structural and aesthetic concerns. If you have dead or dying trees on your property, we encourage you to take the initiative to remove (and if possible, replace) them before they create further problems for you.

REMOVAL OF DEAD TREES REQUIRES NO PRIOR ARCHITECTURAL REVIEW COMMITTEE APPROVAL. REMOVAL OF LIVE TREES REQUIRES PRIOR APPROVAL. 

ARC approval forms can be found here. All such requests will be handled expeditiously.

NOTE: Many Discovery residents have expressed interest in prior experience with tree services, such as pruning, fire mitigation or removal. Previously, your Board used Community Service funds to contract for removal of a dead tree for a homeowner who was unable, financially or physically, to take care of the dead tree. We solicited seven tree service companies for bids and awarded the contract to Mountain High Tree Care on the basis of both price and prior performance on other Discovery tree projects. Results of this project were completely satisfactory.

Accordingly, we recommend you consider Mountain High Tree Care for your tree projects. If you are interested, contact Becky Wegner at 719-444-8800.

This is an opportunity to address, in a timely and cost effective manner, those tree problems which may contribute to fire, safety, structural, or aesthetic concerns.
