Nextdoor promotes itself as “the private social network for you, your neighbors and your community.”  A Bent Tree property owner created a Nextdoor website for Bent Tree last year and it has evolved into a helpful website with over 200 Bent Tree “neighbors” signed up, and over 400 “nearby neighbors” which includes Big Canoe residents. 

Yesterday morning, one resident, who was unable to get to the store due to an icy driveway, posted an offer to trade their craft beer or a bottle of red wine for TP and eggs.  Hopefully, a successful trade was made. Bent Tree residents are quick to help one another if they can.  With the different elevations, hills, and shady areas in Bent Tree, some areas of the community stay icy days after other areas are bone dry.
