Be a part of our living history as we plant and manage trees for you and future generations to enjoy
The ash trees at Lindsay Golf & Country Club have been devastated by the Emerald Ash Borer. Right across the province Ash trees have fallen victim to this infestation which kills 95% of these trees. Over 200 trees are dead or dying on the course. The goal of the golf club is to replace 200 trees over the next several years. Planting trees of a significant age will help to recreate the beautifully treed course that Lindsay has always been in a shorter time frame. To ensure this happens in a timely and appropriate manner, a tree management plan is being developed in partnership with the Fleming Collage Arboriculture Program.
To develop the woodlots and treed areas of the Lindsay Golf and Country Club through a long -term tree management plan which will provide for healthy and sustainable forests and support biodiversity for the enjoyment and benefit of our members and the larger community.
Development of a Tree Management Plan
The development of a tree management plan is a multi - faceted process which considers many factors including:
- An inventory of the existing trees and species on the golf course and soil types
- Species diversification
- Concerns regarding golf course management and golf course play
- Wildlife habitats
- Housing trends and consideration for course changes as a result of lowering highway number 7 and the associated property loss
Donate and Make a Difference
Planting 200 trees that are a significant size is no a small task. We need your help. Donating money to
plant a tree, in whole or in part, will put the golf course one step closer toward reaching its goal.
Consider giving someone a gift of a tree for a birthday, anniversary or other significant accomplishment.
Memorial trees are also a thoughtful way to recognize and remember a special individual. The
committee is working on the development of a recognition board which will acknowledge all donations
made to the tree planting effort.
