No, it's NOT nice weather!

The recent warmth has put another damper on our tree work.  Just getting around the golf course when the temperatures are in the mid 50's and 60's is difficult to do without creating some sort of damage.  When it is warm like this we are relegated to our shop yard (which has no shortage of work needing to be done) as opposed to doing more harm than good on the golf course.  Today we opted to process some of the logs that we have brought in over the last week and begin quartering the big logs into sizes that are easier to handle.  If you are looking for some firewood for next winter, let me know. 

Another wild temperature swing is in the forcast for later this week, dropping from a high of 66 degrees on Tuesday to a low of only 3 degrees on Thursday.  This should refreeze the ground and allow us to get our equipment back on the course, but will also likely cause damage to any plants that have been fooled into growth due to the recent warmth.

My hope is that between now and April 1st we can enjoy a more normal weather pattern with plenty of cold and some snow thrown in for good measure!

Tracks left from just driving across the golf course.  Impossible to
do any work without causing significant damage to the ground.

Alan and Ben C. process logs from last week's removals.  Free
firewood for anyone interested!
