Reason #384

Of why trees should not be planted close to fine cut playing surfaces.
Trees drop not only leaves in the fall, but flowering parts in the spring. The flower parts (dirty mess), need to be blown off the playing surfaces prior to mowing (money). It takes a lot of money to work with a dirty mess.
It the areas are not blown clean prior, the rollers of our equipment get clogged with the dirty mess. It doesn't take much of the dirty mess to impact our mowing quality, remember, we are mowing at .125".
The photo of the roller shows that there is that much of an accumulation, meaning that we are effectively mowing air.
Hope everyone had a good weekend!
