Tree works

Dead tree
August and September are months when a lot of tree maintenance works are carried out.  With a golf course as heavily treed as CTH such tasks could go on year round at a huge expense but a "tree maintenance" budget is allocated each year and is spread between the following activities so obviously not all of the golf courses can be treated.

This year we will be concentrating  on tree root removal from fairways, removal of dead and dangerous trees and branches and ultimately the grinding of stumps throughout the courses.  As part of the palm cleaning operation we will be selectively removing some of the Cocos Palms to help reduce the annual expenditure on maintaining these declared environmental weeds.
