Neighborhood Profile Updated!

The Officers and Executive Committee, and other neighbors have been fine tuning the neighborhood description for the website, social media and other uses to promote SF using history and current features. You can even use it to market your property, but why would anyone want to leave the Forest?

Take a look at the home page at sherwoodforestneighbors.org and let us know what you think!


Upcoming Events in the Forest


UofSC Belser Arboretum Open House
Sunday, July 17, 1-4pm

Open House is always the 3rd Sunday of every month.

Follow the Arboretum on Instagram and see Facebook for event info.


National Night Out
Tuesday, August 2, 6-8pm
Sherwood Forest ARP Church

Mark your calendars for our next community event National Night Out. Since 1984 on the first Tuesday in August, NNO has enhanced the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. It provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances. The best way to build a better community is to know your neighbors and your surroundings; making communities safer and more caring places to live.

There will be food, games for the kids, music, camaraderie, and maybe police cars and firetrucks!

Tell a neighbor. Better yet, bring them along.

Stay tuned! More details to come.

SFNA Forest Friends

Forest Friends is a new Sherwood Forest neighborhood program. It is being designed to increase understanding of the urban forest that we live in, with incentives to retain and add native trees. Most of us appreciate our wooded neighborhood, but we may not realize the full value of it.

Each month, this column will focus on a different benefit of our forest. Stay tuned for more information, and in the meantime be thankful for your shade trees that help keep your house and yard cool in our hot summers!

Please contact Valerie Marcil if you would like to help further develop this program. We would especially like one or two younger neighbors!


What Are These Flags and Paint Markings?

In the ongoing effort to update our water and sewer lines, the City of Columbia and its contractors are working in our neighborhood.

The flags and paint markings are installed by utility locator companies to identify the approximate location of buried utilities so that the City contractors or you don’t unintentionally dig into an underground utility line.

The color codes are:

  • Blue – potable water
  • Green – sewer and drain lines
  • Yellow – gas, oil, steam, petroleum, or gaseous materials
  • White – proposed excavation
  • Pink – temporary survey markings
  • Red – electric power lines, cables, conduit and lighting cables
  • Orange – communication, alarm or signal lines, cables or conduit
  • Purple – reclaimed water, irrigation and slurry lines

You or your contractor should call 811 or use the South Carolina 811 center’s website a few business days before you begin any digging, including common projects like planting trees and shrubs or installing fences and mailboxes.

Neighborhood News

New Association Officers
Mark Hering tendered his resignation as President of the Association. We thank him for his many years of dedicated service and support to our neighbors. Vice-President Gail Wojtowicz assumed the presidency.

Our bylaws state that an election is required for an interim officer to serve until the annual elections the last quarter of the year. Gail proposed Pat Mason as Vice President. Ed seconded the motion. Discussion did not reveal another candidate. Pat was elected unanimously to serve as interim VP.


Block Captains
Pat Mason is heading up our effort to re-establish the neighborhood block captains program. Block captains are the SFNA’s eyes and ears in the Forest. For more information, contact Pat at pmason@carolinaliving.com.


Forest Friends
Valerie Marcil has suggested forming a group called Forest Friends to educate, advise and assist SF homeowners on managing their trees and gardens. If you are interested, contact Valerie at vallg29205@gmail.com.


Sign Toppers
Thanks to neighborly volunteers, three missing Sherwood Forest sign toppers were recently replaced! There are still two entire street sign posts that need to be replaced and SFNA is working on that!

What is Kalmia?

This is the question which is the answer to the clue “The main street of Sherwood Forest”

But Kalmia is also the name of a plant called Mountain Laurel (Kalmia latifolia) also called calico-bush or spoonwood. It is a flowering shrub or small tree related to azaleas, rhododendron and blueberries which is native to the eastern United States. Chances are that it was present in Forest before the land was cleared and so gave the name to the street. There are specimen plants in the Arboretum!

City of Columbia Reforestation Program
Keeping the Trees in the Forest!

An SFNA neighbor alerted us that the CoC had recently planted three trees on the 3800-3900 blocks of Yale. This was done as part of the CoC’s Forestry and Beautification Department’s Reforestation program which plants trees to replace those which die or have been removed due to safety hazards in the City’s right of way.

Tree planting is done from November to March when the trees are dormant so it is a little late for planting this season. But you can see if your property is eligible and start the process now by contacting Ann Huyler, Reforestation Program Coordinator, at ann.huyler@columbiasc.gov

SFNA Adopt-A-Highway Clean Up
The regularly scheduled clean up has been postponed to a date to be determined.


Crier emails
These informational emails around the first of every month to keep neighbors and friends up do date on neighborhood events, and other events and information of interest.

If you have information of interest to the neighborhood, please pass it along and we may include it in a future Crier.

Tell your friends and neighbors to subscribe. No membership required, but of course we would like everybody to join! New neighbor? Let us know and we’ll send out the welcome wagon.

To subscribe, email membership@sherwoodforestneighbors.org or subscribe online
