The following awesome photos are a perfect example of how trees and their shade patterns have a negative influence on healthy putting surfaces.
The large dark shadow is the tree trunk that has yet to be removed. The section of the green in full sun was - prior to today - in full shade from the tree canopy for the past 50 years. The left side of the photo shows the canopy shade from the remaining tree.
