Marcia and I saw 4 different Spotted Lanternflies during our short walk yesterday. They aren’t a problem now, but there will be a lot more next year and Homewood will be noticing the damage, unless they can be sprayed and killed before too much damage is done. It will be another expense for Homewood grounds team.
I also checked on the tree with the split limb. It looks to me like the crack is getting wider. The cost of maintaining our trees is also on the rise with their age and the environmental changes.
Have you noticed that all of the Homewood maintenance costs are rising due to the increased environmental issues? If not yet, you will when our rates go up, or if the rates don’t go up, you might be noticing the state of the grounds even more.
