Waiting for the Other Limb to Fall: Minimizing Tree Liability

John Fech

Managing the trees and shrubs on your golf course is more than just making them look appealing to the members and other golfers. Keeping them healthy is key to making sure that they stay in the asset column instead of the eyesore - or worse yet - in the liability column. Nobody wants to be known as the superintendent that neglected the trees on the course to point that it led to an accident. In this 90-minute webcast, John Fech focuses on identifying hazardous trees, the process for determining which trees on the course need immediate attention, documenting inspection and assessment observations. Also covered are management practices that can extend a tree's life, procedures that keep trees thriving and help with making the retain/remove decision.
