The Green Guardians: Why Golf Course Owners Should Invest in Tree Surveys

Golf courses are peaceful havens where lush greens and manicured fairways invite players to indulge in their passion for the game(whatever your par  might be 😊) . However, among the panoramic splendour, there is one important component that is generally overlooked: the trees. As a golf course owner, it is critical to ensure that your greens are healthy, safe, and visually appealing. One way to accomplish this is to invest in tree surveys. In this article, we’ll look at why golf course owners should consider having a tree survey done and the benefits it may provide.

Protecting the Course’s Beauty:
Trees improve the visual appeal of a golf course by adding natural charm and providing shade for players. However, unrestrained tree growth or the presence of sick or structurally deficient trees can detract from the course’s aesthetic appeal. A thorough tree assessment can reveal such hazards, allowing owners to take proactive steps to protect the beauty of their greenspace.

Mitigating hazards and risks:
Safety is the number one responsibility for every golf course owner. Overhanging branches, deadwood, and trees with weak root systems are all possible threats to players, personnel, and property. A thorough tree assessment allows owners to identify high-risk trees and eliminate possible hazards by prompt trimming, removal, or other actions. This not only improves course safety but also reduces the danger of culpability for tree-related incidents.

Optimising course layout and playability:
Strategic tree planting has a tremendous impact on a golf course’s layout and playability. Trees that block sightlines or restrict shot trajectories can annoy golfers and reduce the overall golfing experience. A tree survey assesses the placement of trees in relation to fairways, greens, and hazards, revealing options for course optimisation. By deliberately controlling tree populations, owners can improve playability, create more demanding or picturesque holes, and increase the overall appeal of their course.

Preserving Environmental Balance:
Golf courses are unique ecosystems, with trees playing an important part in preserving environmental balance. Trees offer habitat for wildlife, improve air quality, and reduce soil erosion. However, poor tree management techniques can upset this delicate balance and jeopardise the course’s ecological health. A tree survey allows owners to guarantee that their tree management techniques encourage biodiversity, environmental protection, and long-term ecological sustainability.

A well-kept and visually beautiful golf course is not only a source of pride for owners, but also a significant asset. Trees contribute significantly to the general beauty and perceived value of the property. Investing in frequent tree surveys displays a dedication to property upkeep and management, which improves its marketability and attractiveness to potential investors, members, and visitors. A visually appealing and safe golf course will attract more players, tournaments, and events, increasing revenue and profitability. So, if you run a golf course and want to protect your greens while also improving the golfing experience, consider investing in a full tree survey today. Your greens—and players—will appreciate it.

Can't speak highly enough of this team. Professional, experienced, polite etc etc. 4th time they've been to me ( I don't live in a forest , just got lots of large unruly trees). Ryan and Calum did an amazing job on them. No complaints as they ploughed through all my requests in the pouring rain. Mustn't forget Kate in the office and Billy who leads the team. All of them are fantastic. If you need any tree work Evoke are the only ones to call. Thanks guys . Photo before and after on the front hedge

I've used Evoke Tree Services for crown reduction to my large oak tree, hedge trimming, ivy removal and now log supplies. I will continue to use them as their customer service and attention to detail is second to none. Billy and the team are brilliant and I would highly recommend them to anyone seeking a service they provide. Thanks Evoke!

Second time using Yvoke and can't be more pleased. The business is knowledgeable and reputable. The last couple of days the guys have been hard at work, they are professional, polite and so hard-working and left my garden super clean. They worked so hard. Could not be more pleased - thanks all and see you next time.

We were delighted by the work Evoke did on our hedge. This was a significant pruning but was done with care and commonsense. It resulted in a job that was superb - and looked better than anticipated. Their professionalism was appreciated; we can highly recommend the company. Jim

We have used Evoke for our tree work for several years. As always, a very well-done job from start to finish, including the initial visit and obtaining the appropriate permissions from the WHC. All the trees were pruned as requested to a very good shape and the site was cleared of all rubbish.

Good service, provided by nice staff. The team handled the application process required for the removal of a number of very large lleyandii, plus the removal and stump grinding. Even dealing with having to work around a large amount of waste material and old fencing from previous owners.
