Pinebrook Fire Safety Work Complete; Free Firewood AvailablePosted: October 4, 2019
The professional crew that was working on our Pinebrook Master Association and Pinebrook Homeowners Association properties have now completed their work. We welcome all of you (our Pinebrook neighbors) to help yourselves to as much free fire wood as you can haul away. It’s lining the side of lower Canyon Drive and Canyon Drive Court. We are posting here today to our Pinebrook neighbors only. On Monday we will broaden our posting and make whatever firewood remains available to everyone in Summit County. Please direct any questions about this project to David Geffen at email@example.com and Don Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will have before and after drone photos and video of both work sites available in about two weeks and will share that when available. Please feel free to share your thoughts about the project work with Don and me (for further sharing with the Fire Safety Committee and our HOA Boards) by return email.
FIRE SAFETY WORK IS EXPECTED TO BE PERFORMED DURING THE WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 30TH IN UPPER PINEBROOKPosted: September 24, 2019
Pinebrook Master Association and Pinebrook Homeowners Association have contracted with Summitt Forests of Ashland, Oregon to do fire prevention related work on two of our community owned properties. Tree removal work will be performed on eight acres adjacent to upper Pinebrook Road and lower Canyon Drive (from Buckboard to Canyon Drive Court), and Oak Brush removal work will be performed on two acres between Canyon Drive and Hitching Post (adjacent to Dan’s Crest Trail). The objectives of these projects are fuel reduction and creation of fire breaks. Once started we expect that the larger project will be completed within 3-5 days and that the smaller project will be completed within 1-2 days. If you have any questions about this work, please send an email to David Geffen at email@example.com and Don Brownatdonb@utahskies.org. Please be on the lookout for the work crews and please use caution when driving near these work areas or using the trails near these work areas when work is being performed.
Wood Chipping Reminder!Posted: September 11, 2019
There are still many piles of wood alongside the roads in Pinebrook. Remember, the Pinebrook HOA does not provide curbside chipping services. If you want your wood chipped you MUST contact the Park City Fire District through their website to schedule a chipping service or contact a landscaping company for hire. The Fire District will chip your wood for free, but they will be suspending services for the year soon…don’t delay!

FIRE SAFETY WORK TO BE PERFORMED IN PINEBROOK SOON; ARE YOU INTERESTED IN OUR CONTRACTOR DOING TREE OR SCRUB REMOVAL ON YOUR PROPERTY?Posted: July 23, 2019
Pinebrook Master Association and Pinebrook Homeowners Association have contracted with Summitt Forests of Ashland, Oregon to do fire prevention related work on two of our community owned properties. Later in the summer or early in the fall, tree removal work will be performed on eight acres adjacent to upper Pinebrook Road and lower Canyon Drive, and Oak Brush removal work will be performed on two acres adjacent to Dan’s Crest Trail between Canyon Drive and Hitching Post Drive. The objectives of these projects are fuel reduction and creation of fire breaks.
Summitt Forests has agreed to take on individual homeowner fuel reduction project work while working here in Pinebrook, subject to the work being performed similarly to the work being performed on our community property and with the understanding that they do not offer any arborist services. We believe that for those homeowners in our neighborhood that are looking to remove a moderate or large amount of dead trees and/or a large amount of Oak Brush that these services will be a very cost effective alternative to having the work performed by our local tree companies. Any work being done on a homeowner’s property will be subject to a contract being executed between the homeowner and Summitt Forests directly with all costs paid by homeowners directly to Summitt Forests.
If you are interested in having Summitt Forests evaluate the work on your property, please send an email as soon as possible to both David Geffen at firstname.lastname@example.org and Don Brownatdonb@utahskies.org with some general information about your situation. David and Don can share some additional information about the services to be provided if you have questions. We will be aggregating the homeowner requests and will pass them on to Summitt Forests and then they will be in touch with you to discuss your needs. Additionally, if you have any questions about the work to be performed on our community owned properties, please contact David and Don.
Construction DetoursPosted: July 13, 2019
The roundabout construction is in full swing and will continue for several more months. Please be courteous to neighborhoods and business and follow the detour signs to get where you are going. Shortcuts through private and business access roads is dangerous and puts significant traffic burdens on roads that were never intended to be through-street. Thank you for your cooperation.
Fireworks are ProhibitedPosted: July 3, 2019
Just a reminder that the Rules and Regulations adopted by the Pinebrook HOA last year prohibit fireworks. Nevertheless, the PMA has requested additional security patrols for July 4th. Even though Summit County has not banned fireworks this year and other HOA’s in Pinebrook (there are 13 of them) may not prohibit fireworks in their neighborhoods, we live in the mountains and fireworks are a major threat to our community this time of year. Please follow the Rules, or use fireworks responsibly and have a safe 4th of July holiday!
Calling for Pinebrook Volunteers on Saturday, June 29th 9am to 1pm.Posted: June 21, 2019
Pinebrook is about to undertake its first volunteer fire safety event of 2019. There are a number of downed trees just above Canyon Drive Court on the side of Canyon Road on Pinebrook Master Association property and we are looking for volunteers to assist with cutting up these trees and moving them to the side of the street where they can be picked up by members of our community for use as firewood. We are specifically looking for 5-10 individuals with chainsaws or chainsaw experience to assist in cutting down the trees, a few individuals to help move the cut logs down to the side of the road, and possibly a photographer to record the event with some before, during and after photos. The meeting location is the corner of Canyon Drive Court and Canyon Road at 9am on Saturday June 29th. To RSVP or if you have any questions, please email email@example.com. Thanks in advance for spreading the word and for joining us if you’re able. Look for more announcements about other Pinebrook volunteer fire safety events here in coming months and if you haven’t joined our Pinebrook Fire Safety Committee email list yet, please send an email with your name, physical address and email address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
E-Bike Safety and Use on Pinebrook TrailsPosted: June 5, 2019
As many of you are aware, electric assisted bikes (E-bikes) are becoming quite popular in our community. Pinebrook’s private trail system is a multi-use system intended to provide enjoyment for hikers, runners and bikers. However, safety concerns have been raised regarding the use of E-bikes on the trails, primarily because of the weight of E-bikes and the speed in which they can travel both uphill and downhill. Park City and Mountain Trails Foundation enthusiastically support the use of E-bikes on paved, multi-use pathways but do not allow them on single-track trails. The Pinebrook HOA endorses their position. Please do not ride E-bikes on the single-track trails in Pinebrook, both for the safety of the rider and that of the other trail users. Thank you.
