BEVERLYWOOD BULLETIN – MAY 6, 2022

PARKWAY TREES - Any change to existing trees in the parkway (the area between the sidewalk and the street) requires a Landscape Application, and approval of the BHA Landscape committee and the Board. Any violation of this practice can be complicated and expensive.
