Tree roots will rob nutrients and water from turfgrass causing the turf to become Weak and exposing bare ground. We have been Prunning the worst hit areas around the course over the last week. Our process has been to cut and remove sod from the area, trench down to approximately 8-10 inch while cutting through the roots on one or two sides of the trees drip line. Third, the staff fills and tamps the dirt back into the trench line. Finally the sod is laid back over the trench for recovery.
