Yard Waste Dumping
The Trustees want to remind all residents that depositing branches, leaves or other yard waste onto common ground, streets or into sewers is in violation of the subdivision By-laws and may also be illegal. Yard waste deposited onto common ground can kill native plants underneath, whose roots help maintain soil integrity. Once the plants and roots are dead, erosion often results. The Trustees spend thousands of dollars on common ground erosion issues annually.  Dumping yard waste on common ground hurts all of us when subdivision funds are diverted from other needs to address erosion issues.

Any resident who is found to have dumped yard waste onto common ground or into sewers will be required to rectify the situation or pay the cost of remediation incurred by the Trustees. If a resident hires a contractor who subsequently causes yard waste to be deposited onto common ground or sewers, the resident is responsible for the actions of his or her contractor.

Please refrain from this destructive practice, and bring any issues that you are aware of to the attention of the Trustees.

The Trustees meet the first Tuesday of every month.  If you are interested in attending as a resident of the neighborhood, please contact a trustee to confirm location.  Residents are encouraged to attend.  Click here for guidelines for residents attending trustee meetings.


The meeting minutes from each Trustee meeting can be found in your monthly Forest Flashes and on this website under "Trustee Meeting Minutes."

When residents purchase their home they must agree to the subdivision indentures, or trust agreement. This includes the bylaws which help determine what residents are allowed or not allowed to do. The trustees interpret the trust agreement for the betterment of the neighborhood. They interpret them because the bylaws do not explicitly cover all possible situations and expressly convey powers to the trustees to implement these indentures.  We encourage all resident to download and familiarize yourself with these documents (below) as they are the rules of the subdivision.


*The board has no official power to police the actions of residents of the subdivision outside the indentures signed when residents move in. If residents believe something illegal is happening, they should call the St. Louis County police or 911 in an emergency.
