Disease and natural attrition have reduced our beautiful cooling mature tree canopy which reduces energy costs, absorbs pollutants, reduces noise, and helps with stormwater management. The aesthetic beauty of our mature tree canopy in Edgewater Glen is an invaluable asset that local realtors site as an extremely desirable amenity for our community as well.
The EGA is happy to report that we have already had 2 parkway trees planted last fall via this program and have approvals so far for 9 more trees to be planted in Edgewater Glen this spring.
We would like to see more parkway tree applications for this program to help keep our neighborhood beautiful!
The past year has been trying for all organizations, including the Edgewater Glen Association. The EGA played a critical role in community outreach during the start of the pandemic, and, on a lighter note, we were able to introduce our exclusive Front Yard Showcase series.
At the same time, we had to cancel our regular events, including the garden walk, plant swaps, and our public meeting. The majority of our membership renewals occur during these events. While we are making tentative plans to hold a safe garden walk and other events this year; we are reaching out to ask you to go to our membership page and renew your membership today.
The Edgewater Glen Association’s 2020 Summer Newsletter was distributed to all EGA area neighbors this morning. You can download the newsletter by selecting the link below. If you are interested in going back in time to see what was going on in our neighborhood over the past 45+ years you can also visit the EGA Newsletter archives to see publications dating back to the early 1970s here: https://edgeglen.com/newsletter/
