November 2017

November has been another unseasonably warm month. There have been several great weather golfing days. We have continued herding leaves and will continue through December. The winter season is when we attempt to get caught up with tree trimming.  Below are some pictures of some of the work we have done, including cutting back the Honeysuckle brush along the drive up from Gregory Rd, and thinning up the Honeylocust trees behind 11 green.

Fall is also a good time to plant trees. The plant survival rate when planted in the fall is much greater than when planted in any other season. We planted a Frontier Elm between 17 and 2 early in the month where there was a previous tree. Frontier Elm is a tree well suited for the Kansas City climate and is a fast growing tree.
