What's New in Ballantree?

Our neighborhood park and entrance have seen some changes.

Because we’ve lost several older trees in the park in the past decade, we are fortunate to have poplar and redbud tree saplings newly added. Donated by Mark Lynch, Bill Vintson, John Dugan, Eric Robinson and Melinda Graves, the trees were planted by several of our Ballantree Board members. Additionally, several dead and wood-peckered limbs in the area of the picnic area were identified as hazardous and then removed.

Residents have reported difficulty seeing incoming traffic when biking or walking at the Braddock-Ballantree intersection, so a large shrub was removed from the eastern section of the median. Rose bushes have been planted by TPS in that same area.
