Summary of Patrol
This was the fourth patrol of the 2020/2021 year. It took place the week of November 30. As is outlined below, 7 incidents were found during the patrol. We have attached the red unhappy face as there was a fair bit of damage was in the community with the snow event early in this week.
Weather seen at time of patrol
Weather was very poor early in the week — a very heavy weighted snowfall fell, creating havoc with pine and cedar trees in our community. The weather was quite nice during the patrol, no issues.
A lot of fallen branches, tree tops and smaller trees were noted across many properties with some blocking driveways. This was seen especially south of the lighthouse (Huron Road and Rosinke Drive or Zone 3 and Zone 4). If structures were damaged or at risk of getting damaged from the fallen trees, the homeowners were notified.
It should be noted that for every incident, the patrollers identify the issue as best they can, take pictures, contact the owners, and, if requested, sends photos to the owners. All of the information is kept/saved both by the patroller and by the Association.
On Huron Road, several trees fell and one tree is resting against the side of the house. No apparent damage was noted to the structure. Access to the house is limited due to several trees across the driveway. Owners notified.
On Huron Road, two trees fell onto the house. No apparent damage. Both trees are resting on the upper level deck from two different directions. Patio furniture is damaged. Owners notified.
On Huron Road, two fallen trees on property. One adjacent to driveway. One is resting on the house. No apparent damage to the house. Owners notified.

On Rosinke Drive, 15 to 20 trees are down. At least 5 to 10 are definitely fallen. Others may have been bent down but not broken and may stand up when snow melts. One tree is blocking driveway and large tree is across the deck. Owners notified.
On Rosinke Drive, three large fallen trees are laying across property access road. No apparent structural damage was noted. VM left for the owners.
On Victoria Road, a large tree fell across access road. It appears that it was dragged back on homeowner’s property to open the access road. Owners notified.
Upcoming weather forecast for Point Clark (as of December 3), from the Weather Network
This photo was taken December 1 by Sue Foster — many trees came down (as outlined above), but the damage below was very typical of what happened to many trees on properties in Point Clark with the heavy snowfall and wind.
So, even if you did not have a major issue at your place, you will likely see some branches etc. broken and down in your yards if you have pine or cedar trees.
