We purchased this lot in May 2013 to build an infill house. The site proved more difficult that we originally realized. A City sanitary sewer ran diagonally across this lot (continuing down to Cherry Avenue). Further, rainfall from the surrounding 4th Street/Oak Street hill ran into a storm sewer manhole that goes under Oak Street and outlet right onto this lot on the south side of the street. The City approved our site plan for sewer alterations in July 2014.
When we purchased the lot, there were six trees on the property. In November 2014 one of the larger Kentucky Coffee trees fell down in a storm (perhaps due to the very moist ground from the storm sewer) over the alley onto our fence at 318 Oak St (luckily no one was hurt). We milled this tree on site and used the wood for flooring in our 303 5th St SW house. We felt we needed to take down the others in the storm sewer path (and the future house site) sooner rather than later for liability/safety reasons. We cut these down in April 2015, admittedly a terrible time of year to lose the beautiful tress, but at a time when we thought we would be moving forward more quickly on construction. The felled trees were taken to a local sawmill where they were milled into flooring for our 1324 Avon Street house.
We apologize for the length of this project and the frustrations it has caused the neighbors. We understand that the trees brought much shade, protection, and beauty to the neighborhood and the wildlife there. We also understand that there was particular sentimental value to the weeping willow by the driveway and we miss it still. Although not a true replacement, we planted new trees on site and look forward to seeing all the landscaping grow in. We have also purchased a bunch of saplings from the Virginia Department of Forestry. If you have any interest in taking a tree or two and planting them in your own yard in Fifeville or elsewhere in the City of Charlottesville, we would be happy to pass those along. If you have any questions, please contact Joey Conover directly.
