Update- this week has seen the tree work completed at the 7th hole. This involved removing the trees along the right hand side, from the holly bush (front right) to the cherry tree (back right) and the conifers under the oak tree (back left). This tree removal was essential to improve the condition of the green. It will help improve airflow and light to the green, prevent further root invasion (which takes valuable water and nutrients from the green), the cherry tree was only 6 yards from the green and the oak tree only 8 yards, the roots from these trees will be twice that distance.
Removal of these trees will also help us introduce grass to this area, many parts are bare (despite previous efforts to seed and turf them), due to the shade and water drip damaged caused by over hanging branches .
I understand many may not like the work we have done, but I hope you can appreciate the reasons behind it, to make improvements, sometimes drastic measures need to be taken.
Work will start removing the tree stumps next week, in the meantime - watch your step.
If anyone has any further questions, don’t hesitate to ask me.
