USGA Article In Regards To Tree Management Plans
A great article from the USGA regarding trees on a golf course. Please take the 10-15 minutes it takes to read this outstanding article giving a historical record on how trees evolved on golf courses. This perfectly explains the situation we are now experiencing at Glen Echo. This does not speak of the elimination of trees but the thoughtful and considerate placement of trees as well as removal to improve overall playability, turf quality and the true cost of an overabundance of trees on a course.
