Abstract:Discusses tree placement on golf courses, stating that "trees placed almost anywhere on a golf course add to its interest and beauty if careful consideration is given to placing them"; however "haphazard placement compromises many a great hole." Lists "depth perception"; "shade at tees"; "additional playing interest"; "safety, windbreaks"; "[screening] unsightly views"; and "boundary planting" as potential positive aspects of proper tree placement.
