Abstract/Contents:When planting trees, select a location where the mature tree will not get in the line of flight of the ball. Greens and tees need sunlight and air circulation, so don't plant dense groves of trees around them. Never plant large trees closer than 75 feet from a green, because they will compete for available water and nutrients. Don't try to fill rough areas between fairways for the sake of safety. An amateur player can hit a ball over the trees and sometimes will. Leave space between trees so that golfers' movement will not be inhibited. Flowering trees are beautiful, but they are delicate and must be protected from mowing equipment. Try to avoid screening out scenic vistas. Use large existing trees to indicate yardage by marking them with small plaques. Don't plant trees at regular intervals as yardage markers. It is impossible to replant a tree at exactly the same spot, if one must be replaced. It is better if trees blend in with the course surroundings. Select a tree that will match the existing vegetation and have favorable characteristics. A continuous vegatation scheme is often the trademark of many of America's highest ranked courses. Never plant more trees than the maintenance staff can maintain. New trees require extra attention in the first year.
