Please be Mindful of Pine Beetles
Several BDR homeowners have cut and removed pine trees due to pine beetle infestation. Fortunately, it is not an epidemic but we encourage everyone to pay close attention to trees on their property and neighboring properties. According to an article by the Colorado State University (CSU) Extension Office, “The mountain pine beetle epidemic, drought, and most recently broken branches, tops, and toppled trees due to heavy snow or wind have contributed to the population increase.” We typically notice pine beetle attack after it’s too late – when the tree fades at the top or the entire tree. There are tell-tale signs of pine beetle attack before the tree fades, and we should be mindful of these signs to take immediate corrective action. The link to the CSU article on the Ips beetle is below. Please take a few minutes to read it, and share it with your neighbors. Thank you!

Trees In Road Ditches
There are many trees that are growing in BDR road ditches or within 5 feet from the ditch. They are creating or will create a problem in properly maintaining our roads. The BDRPOA Road Managers are in the process of flagging larger trees that will be removed by a contractor at no cost to the POA. Property owners who have smaller trees that are in road ditches or within 5 feet of the ditch may remove them to relocate on their property. Please be aware of underground utility lines! If you remove any trees, do not be concerned about back filling the holes because the road grader will take care of it. There is no set timeline for the tree removal project; therefore, please remove any desired small trees as soon as possible. If you have any questions, please contact your respective Road Manager (North Side: Gary Eastwood, 783-2234 and South Side: Ron Newman, 783-0652).

Thank you, Bonnie!
We would like to thank another Board Member who recently resigned. Bonnie Elkins has moved back to Nebraska to be closer with her family. She stated “We left Westcliffe with heavy hearts and hate to leave all our friends and the weather!” Bonnie has served on the Board since 2011, and she was elected as the Vice-President, worked on acquiring advertisers for our Directory, and secured place for our bi-monthly meetings. We will miss her as a friend and a valuable member of our Board. We wish Bonnie and Roland many happy trails!
If you are interested in serving on the BDRPOA Board, please contact Ron Newman, President, at 783-0652. Thank you!
Thank you, Judy!
Judy Anderson has recently stepped down from the BDRPOA Board, and we would like to acknowledge and thank Judy for the many years she has volunteered her services to our community. Judy has been a member of the Board, on and off, since 2004. She served as the Secretary and on the Grazing and Annual Christmas Party committees. Her goal on the Board was to help improve the Ranch. Judy, mission accomplished! We will miss her, but the good news is that Judy will continue to be the liaison with our grazing contractor and coordinating the Christmas Party.
