Tree Plantings

While at a nursery selecting Spruce trees, we discovered several large Oak trees the nursery owner had scheduled for removal. Instead of seeing these beautiful trees cut down, we negotiated a good price and moved them in January onto the South Course.

These Bur Oak and Swamp White Oak were placed left of #15 South and behind the green on #15 North. The areas are populated by native Oak trees. Over the last decade, these two areas have lost several trees to disease, storms and old age, so it's appropriate to re-plant Oaks.

Oak trees are notorious for being difficult to transplant, but with a large tree spade our survival rate has been very high when transplanting in the winter. So I am confident these specimen trees will survive and provide a beautiful addition to the golf courses.
