Tree trimming

One of the perennial winter tasks we take on is tree trimming.  This week was the start of that month long project. 

This is one of those tasks I really enjoy doing.  After completing an area, I stand on the tee and admire the change and cleanliness that is now present.  There are many reasons why we try to keep trees trimmed, they include:
  • Improved access by golf carts
  • More space for that perfect swing if you happen to be under a tree
  • Less damage to trees due to hitting branches with a rough mower roll-bar
  • Improved turf growth around and under the tree
  • Easier access by string trimmers
  • More air circulation through the course which improves turf health
  • And, a more professional/clean appearance to the grounds
