Mr.Lulek was concerned about his Pin Oak (pictured right). Can you guess what happened?
“After inspecting the tree,” says Drew Slousky, Giroud Vice President and ISA Certified Arborist, “I searched the yard for clues and found the culprit: a golf club. Apparently, young children were playing with a golf club and hit the tree. Unfortunately, the damage will kill the tree.”
While a golf club is unique, trees are often victims of mechanical damage from every day weapons like lawn mowers, weed eaters and cars. A ring of mulch is good protection…unless you have an industrious child, who likes golf.
