Planning to remove a tree?
Carderock's designation as an Historic District is partly due to the way the homes are placed in the landscape, a style known as "Situated Modernism."
Our natural setting and canopy of mature trees are not only sources of pride and beauty in our community. They're resources we're committed to protect.
In many cases, tree removal is acceptable in Carderock Springs. But our covenants require approval, by a representative of the Carderock Springs Citizens Association, before removing certain trees.
Looking to replace your mailbox? Here's a DIY plan for building your own distinctive version of Carderock's most popular model -- sturdy, easy to build if you're handy (or to hand off to a handyperson if you're not), and very fitting with the neighborhood aesthetic. See the plans. (Courtesy resident Gunnar Tomasson.)
