Cutting Down the ESAs

This week began cutting down the Environmentally Sensitive Areas as part of their yearly maintenance.  Earlier this year in the spring time we burned the dead material off, due to weather issues that prevented us from doing it last fall.  This practice allows for the recycling of the organic matter that accumulates in these areas.  Letting the stalks of the plants fall over, and not removing them, will shade the ground in the spring and prevent regeneration of the plants.  Over time this would decrease the diversity and uniformity that has been established over the past few years.

The area near 11 tee and the area near the pond at 14 green have been completed.  We will continue to work on these areas over the next week.
