Golf Course Architecture: Issue 53 JULY 2018

HUNTSMAN TREE SUPPLIER Huntsman Tree Supplier caters to the special needs of golf course architects, superintendents and developers, by providing beautiful specimen trees perfect for any landscaping design. Our method allows trees to withstand higher levels of stress and use less water during and after transplanting. GROWING QUALITY TREES SINCE 1985 “There are legitimate reasons for tree removal, for example, they may be impeding on green or fairway, a disease might lead to irreversible decline or occasionally a change in design may be worthy of a removal. While there are great links courses such as Whistling Straits, Bandon Dunes and the beautiful courses in Ireland on the ocean, there is something inherently beautiful about those courses that use trees to their advantage. Think Augusta National, Memorial, GreenBriar, Harbour Town and Bay Hill to name a few. Trees create beauty: they provide shade in the summer and enhance the wildlife all year round. The irreversible action of tree removal in order to see a clubhouse, or to emulate the original design, is something that should be questioned.” At Huntsman Tree Supplier, we understand the unique needs of golf course architects, golf superintendents and golf course developers when selecting, transplanting and installing, top-quality specimen trees. To meet those requirements, we have a dedicated Golf Course division to provide a personalized service during every stage of the process. Our team has decades of experience helping golf course professionals select and plant just the right trees to complete their vision. With over 600 acres of tree farms in several locations, we service golf courses throughout Florida and the Southeast United States, using cutting edge techniques and technology to make certain your tree arrives healthy and ready to grow.
