Tree Program Update

With all factors considered, the progress on the tree health program is amazing. The arborist and his staff have taken down 27 trees. They have also completed some of the required pruning and grounded out a few stumps. The constant weekly rains has been the largest obstacle in completing additional work, but overall the progress is impressive.

As you can see from the photo above and following, some holes are going to look different. Most of the tree work is being performed for turf health and play ability.

Completed pruning at 8 tee from the back tee.

Even though 27 trees have been taking down, much more work needs to be completed before I deem a removal “complete”. Logs have to be removed off the property, stumps have to ground out, cleaned up, their void back-filled and then seeded or sod depending on their location. The Green Dept staff take over the process after the stumps have been ground.

Here is a link to an updated tree list that will give you a little more detail on where we stand on all the tree work. Please note the few new additions highlighted in yellow.  I have to give a shout out to Glenn Riggs, Arborist. Glenn and his staff have been very flexible with scheduling and generous with their time by completing some additional pruning free of charge.

And one last photo from 14 fairway, please note one more pine behind the green to the right has yet to be removed.
