Trees are an important part of the landscape on a Parkland golf course, but all living things have a limited life span. When that life comes to a close, no matter how attached we may be to a specific tree or trees, whether the tree is dying, diseased or has become a hazard, it must be removed. That time has come for the three large Weeping willows by the pond on six. You can see from the photos below, the trees have large cracks in the trunks, branches have numerous shelf mushrooms emerging, which are indicators of decay, and the trunks are completely rotted throughout.
Large trees in the middle will be removed
Another view of the same ash tree.
American elm to the right of the 8th tee will be removed.
Bur oak behind the 17th tee will be removed as it has become a hazardous tree.
The base of the tree has split and the cavity of the tree has decayed.
Tim's Tree Service will be here beginning the week of November 5th. They will start with tree removals and then the remaining budget will be utilized on trimming.
