do you ever see those orange tree protection signs. pretty ridiculous that they put them up after the developes kill all of the big beautiful trees they put these up to save a few scruffy trees ..at least that is what Seagroves Farm did on Center Street. They chopped down a 300 year old massive oak. I guess one more unit could fit there? Could they have left it? Doesn't the town of Apex give a damn?

I can't believe all of those trees they took down, in that area. How sad, they are going to build some more town homes.

Agree with both of your comments. Developer was connected to the republican party. Mayor and the townboard mostly republican. Pretty sad what they did to that property on top of that this area of Apex is a zoning mess.

That area off of 1010 is sure a mess. The housing around Waterford Green is going to go down, no doubt!
Oh yeah

Don't buy in Waterford Green. The neighboorhood is filled with agressive New Yorkers.

Ha Ha the red plastic protection areas?? It's a developers ploy!!! I've been here for over 15 years and watched many of these developments go up. When it starts off there a whole mess of them around. Everyone moves in thinking wow we have all these wonderful trees around us and they're "protected" What laugh... they're protected till the subdivision is filling up or the subdivision being built next to gets started.:-):-)

How do you go about protecting a 300 year old oak from developers?
