Tree Maintenance Program(Limb removal)

Our TMP,(Tree Maintenance Program) not only includes the removal of dead and or damaged trees but also requires that trees be pruned to remove lower branches. The removal of the branches is needed for a number of reasons.
  • As a tree becomes mature, shade from the upper branches reduces the ability of the lower branches to survive because the lack of sunlight.
  • Lower limbs are removed to improve the overall health of our turf in the rough under and adjacent to the trees as well as along the fairways by allowing more sunlight to reach the grass.
  • Smaller trees have limbs raised to allow carts and mowing equipment to navigate around safely.
  • Dead limbs are removed to reduce the opportunity for disease and insect damage.

Assistant Skip and Russell doing the honors along # 2 cart path. Limbs which have been removed and are then cut up and hauled back to our chipper in the maintenance area. Tom and Jason have been working the last few days doing the clean up work.
We've got one more week rental of our lift so the guys will be working feverishly over the next 6 days to complete as much work as possible.

Nice blog. Removing large trees is a mammoth process and only experienced arborists who are completely insured to perform this task. We need to take all necessary precautions while removing trees so that nearby buildings, electric wire and other obstacles are not damaged.
