Question:"We have been having trouble with brownpatch on our greens each summer in a wooded section of the course. The mercury treatments seem to be less effective there than on the other greens. I should appreciate your suggestions for improving this situation."
Source of Question:Maryland
Answer/Response:"If the greens which are difficult to maintain during the summer months are partly surrounded by large trees, the lowhanging branches may be cutting off the free circulation of air. It has been demonstrated that adequate circulation of air reduces the severity of attacks of brownpatch and other turf ailments. If some of the lower branches could be removed in such a way as to open air channels and permit the wind to blow across the greens, we feel sure that you would have less difficulty in maintaining the turf during the hot sultry periods each summer. Such openings need not detract from the landscaping effect of the trees and would be an advantage from the standopint of playing conditions as well as of the maintenance of nearby turf."
