Berksdale Update 12/18 Tree Removal

We chose to remove the Bradford pear trees on the Berksdale Golf Course for several reasons. Primarily, it was a proactive effort to take them down before they fell. Second, Bradfords (Callery pear) have become an invasive species, cross pollinating with native pears and over running many fields. Third, we realized chipping the limbs would generate significant mulch. Upper limbs were chipped and can be seen at our signature Berksdale bed. Larger limbs were piled in our debris area to naturally decay instead of being burned and trunk stumps were left for basic chainsaw carving.
