Woods Bay Homeowners Association, Inc.

Spring  2017


 
 
Hello to all and WELCOME to all new homeowners in Woods Bay!  We are happy to see winter leave and warmth come back for the summer season.  There are a number of visible signs of maintenance and improvements in our homesites.  To list a few of the obvious steps homeowners are taking to improve their homes & land:  structural improvements, tree & shrub trimming, weed management & positive plant growth, and removal of unused vehicles & waste materials.  The efforts being made are noticed and are appreciated and benefiting all!
 
Spring is a good time of year to think about cleaning up potential fire hazards around your property.  John Ingebretson, forester from the Swan Valley Connections provided us with the following suggestions:
 
• In a wildfire, most structures are lost due the ignition of light debris, such as needles and leaves collecting on roof valleys, or along gutter and under decks, where wind-driven embers easily ignite them clean these areas up in the spring and throughout the summer.
 
• Thin existing healthy trees….remove unhealthy and/dead trees and branches.  Thinning should be accompanied by cleaning up the slash.
 
• Safe access to your property for the arrival of firefighters and departure for you and your neighbors is critical.
