Thank you note from TreesCharlotte...
Dear Cameron Wood community,
A special thanks to each of you for your participation in Saturday’s TreesCharlotte NeighborWoods event.  You are helping to expand and diversify Charlotte’s urban forest and we appreciate your involvement. 
Thank you!
Also, a special thanks to those who volunteered for the event, both helping to plan and run the event.  You made possible the distribution of more than 165 trees to neighborhood residents and common areas – thank you!
If you have not yet planted your tree(s) please plant them immediately.  Attached (Check the CW Blog for 'Tree Planting and Care') are proper planting and tree care instructions for your reference or check out this video
The keys to proper planting are:
  • Proper hole depth – the root flare, where the trunk begins to flare out to form the root structure, should be an inch or so above the natural soil line.
  • Proper hole width – the hole should be twice as wide as the root ball.  Tamp the dirt in around the tree firmly to prevent the tree from slumping.
  • Eliminate circling roots – make sure the roots are not circling.  Cut any circling roots.
  • Mulch and protect – keep a ring of mulch around the tree and protect the tree from any contact with mowers or weed eaters.
  • Water – water your tree immediately after planting and every week with 5 gallons.  Water twice a week during dry summer and fall weather.  If you don’t water your tree it will probably die.
Please take good care of your trees – they will love you for years to come.  Click here for additional tips on trees care.
Check out photos of the event on our Flickr account.  Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and Twitter to keep up with all our events.  We would love for you to share you pictures with us by tagging them #treesclt.
At TreesCharlotte, we are committed to continuous quality improvement – please let me know of any suggestions you have for TreesCharlotte and how your experience could have been improved.

Be Courteous, Be a mindful neighbor...
As the weather continues to improve and more people enjoy the outdoors I wanted to remind residents of a few important items.

The first idea is simple:  clean up after your pets!  It's unfortunate that we have to continue to emphasize this requirement, which is both a city ordinance and a rule of common decency.

Second, it is essential that residents respect the right to quiet enjoyment of their neighbors.  Please be mindful of dogs being left out all day to bark.  Below are links to our city and county noise ordinances, and to the covenants and by-laws available to you for reference on the CW website. 
Last, please mind the boundaries between the HOA owned property and private property.  This is particularly important around the pond and ball field.  Residents should not be walking on, or cutting through, private property.
