Reserve HOA Slope Tree Removal/Replacement Plan

Reserve HOA Members,

The City of San Clemente has approved the HOA Tree Removal/Replacement Policy and therefore, we will soon begin to remove those trees on the common area slopes that are slated for removal. The process will take about a full 2-3 months and it should begin near January 1st.

To view which trees are slated for removal, please click on THIS LINK!

  • All trees that are slated for removal have been reviewed by both the community’s third-party arborist, Monarch Environmental, as well as the Board of Directors. Only trees that fit the criteria outlined in the Reserve HOA’s common area tree removal/replacement policy are will be removed.
  • The criteria outlined in the common area tree removal/replacement policy are as follows:
    • The tree is:
      • Dead/Dying
      • Diseased
      • Dangerous
      • Destructive
      • Inappropriately centered in the intended view corridor area for a home (as identified in the plan view graphic in the city approved concept landscape plan)
      • a topped tree that cannot be crown restored
  • Per the HOA’s agreement with the city of San Clemente, the community is required to replace the trees that are removed at a 1:1 ratio in appropriate locations. The primary planting locations for the replacement trees will be on the community’s interior slopes where the majority of the mature trees will be removed. The pre-approved species that will be planted have been chosen based on the criteria that the trees’ height and width can be controlled through routine maintenance.
  • “Skyline trees” and trees located outside of the community’s gates along Camino Vera Cruz, Ave. Vista Hermosa, and Costero Risco will require review by the city planning division and the city’s landscape architect. A submittal package for all the trees in this category has been provided to the city on behalf of the HOA by Monarch Environmental. These trees will be removed only when final city approval is granted.


SAVE THE DATE: Saturday, October 27 from 3:00 – 6:00 pm – at the pool, parking lot and surrounding recreational areas!

Come have fun with your neighbors and enjoy live music, a taco bar and fun for the kids with costume contests, a bounce house and obstacle courses!

Action Property Management has developed an industry leading online application that allows you to access the information you need.
