Approval to Remove Five Trees at the Driving Range that are Beginning to Damage the Pavement Between the Parking Lot and the Woodworking Shop.
The Villages Woodworking Shop has requested that we consider removing the trees that are beginning to damage the pavement on the trail between the Driving Range and the Woodworking Shop. In reviewing the area, I have determined that up to five trees will need to be removed. I normally hate to remove any tree but for one reason or another, the Live Oak Trees were planted directly under the power lines. This conflicted with our ordinance at the time and now. The trees are butchered by the power company and will never have a healthy life. Taking this into consideration, I am recommending that we remove them. Over the years, we have planted dozens of trees at this park so I will not recommend replacing them for the sake of replacing them. I will coordinate with Public Works and try to complete the project in house.
