Isn't there an ordinance for new homes being built to have X number of hard wood/native trees planted? I live in Stewart Creek Estates and my home (Highland) was built over 2 yrs ago and we were told we could not have Bradford Pears b/c they were not native trees/hardwood but now a new builder in our subdivision, Bowen Builders Group, has several homes with those particular trees in there front yards. Any information you could provide would be helpful.

Thank you for bringing this matter to my attention. Hardwood trees are required, and this does not include Bradford Pear trees.

Jennifer Thomas, landscape architect, will be contacting the homebuilder to resolve this matter.

For further information, you may call Jennifer Thomas at 972-335-5540 ext 147.
