Thin trees

Trees which surround areas of fine turf restrict incident light and also prevent free air movement. The resultant shady, humid conditions predispose the sward to Fusarium Patch attack.

If possible trees should be thinned to allow free air circulation and to reduce shade.

In situations where the trees are are established and an integral part of the course/hole, air movement can be improved by removing scrub and undergrowth at the base.
