As Ash trees are weakened by the borers, they will be removed. Today we are taking down 5 Ash Trees, 2 pines and a Silver Maple. The Scotch Pines have been dying for many years around the course from a borer that attacks them. The Silver Maple on #18 was rotten and deemed a safety hazard. Last week a large limb broke off the Silver Maple exposing the decay. This week we will also be removing a dead oak next to #7 tee (on the right). The winter was hard on many trees and they are still showing signs of stress and some may die for no apparent reason.
|Silver Maple to the right of #18 fairway bunker was rotten and a safety hazard, so it was removed. Last week a large limb broke off of the tree.|
|Ash trees are slowing becoming infected with the Emerald Ash Borer. When they begin to show signs of decline, they will be removed. The dead branches at the top of the Ash, with a flush of suckers is the first indication it is infected.|
