The Association has begun the process of addressing Phragmites, which is an
invasive perennial that is in many of the common wetland areas. While the first treatment has been applied,
and the next activity will be performed in February of 2019. The Association is working with Oakland Township
to assure that our efforts are complimentary to the Township effort. For more on Phragmites check

A great place
Wrapped in mature
trees amid gently rolling hills, the Country Creek development is situated on 290 acres in
Oakland Township, Michigan. With almost one quarter of the subdivision devoted to green space,
ponds, and a meandering brook, its executive home sites represent the best blend of
country living with all of the amenities. The charm of community walking paths,
abundant green space and quiet streets--all conveniently located close to Rochester, Great
Lakes Crossing, Oakland University and with easy access to Interstate 75 make Country Creek a
great place to live.
Phragmites cutting the week of February 11, 2019 In conjunction with Oakland Township, we have contracted with PLM Lake & Land Management Corp to address the invasive phragmites that have taken over the wetlands of the subdivision. Following last fall's glyphosate application, the second step to be taken the week of February 11, is to physically cut down the plants. To achieve that, you will likely see equipment operating in the wetland areas of the subdivision.
The goal is to allow the natural vegetation to regrow by taking out the phragmites. It looks like this will likely be a periodic process as the phragmites have no counter species to limit their growth in wetlands. PLM has worked with the Township and Michigan DEQ for all appropriate permits. The work will likely take only a few days, weather permitting.
