Wescott Heights HOA
Iowa City, Iowa
The Homeowners Association of Wescott Heights had several native prairie areas in their common land holdings, surrounded by housing, that were becoming degraded from invasive and weedy plants. Furthermore, two prairie areas were located over septic drainage fields that need to be protected from the damaging effects of tree roots. Weed competition in any landscape can be an issue requiring periodic control and regular maintenance.
Impact7G identified controlled fire and other weed management techniques to be appropriate management tools at this location. The close proximity of residential buildings required good burn planning, communications, and adept fire management techniques, which Impact7G has applied on an annual basis.
