Pedro Velasquez, owner of Genesis Tree Service, says, “Certain aspects of golfing require the grounds to be kept in the best condition. For instance, it can be quite difficult for a golfer to land the ball on a targeted fairway that is not well maintained. Similarly, a putting green that isn't given proper attention could compromise the players' efforts and even safety. These must be kept closely mown, which takes quite a lot of work. It is also important to check for signs of stress in the grass, especially during high temperatures, humidity, pest infestation, or frozen conditions.”

And tree care is also a necessary component of golf course maintenance because trees offer shades for the grass and for the players, especially during summer. Trees have many uses for a golf course. First of all, trees can be provided as habitats for birds and other animals. In this regard, even dead branches can serve a purpose. Of course, tree professionals should be consulted to ensure that the dead branches of trees do not pose a risk to people. Second, they can be utilized as framing trees as part of the aesthetics of the course. Third, trees can be used for their shade, particularly in non-turf areas, such as restrooms, refreshment stands, outdoor dining areas, and clubhouses.

A fourth way to use trees in a golf course is related to the game itself. They can be utilized as directional and obstacle trees. They can be added to make a particular hole uniquely challenging. And as directional trees, they can be used to help the golfer line a shot. Fifth, trees can be used to protect unsuspecting people from being hit by errant golf balls. Sixth, they can also be used as signature trees, as a symbol for a particular course. Seventh, they can be used as screening trees or as cover for unwanted views that disrupt the beauty of a golf course. Eighth, trees can be used to identify doglegs or where a hole shifts from being straight to curved. And finally, trees can be used as backdrops for the greens.

In most of these, a tree professional will be required to ensure that a tree will really serve its purpose and at the same time, it will not pose a danger to people. Genesis Tree Service is ready to provide tree experts advice, tree trimming and tree removal services for golf courses.
