Tree Management Plan, Trees Planted
A majority of trees that should be planted on a golf course are of the non-ornamental variety. We broke the rule today when the staff planted 3 Merlot Redbuds between 16-17 this morning before the rain stopped us for the day. As you know, we removed a couple of large oaks to the left of 17 green to get early morning light on this green. A perfect spot for an ornamental in an area that receives very little play but would provide great viewing of this nice ornamental tree. Additional trees will be planted in other locations later this week if we are not too wet.
