From 8 North Green

We recognize that the sudden removal of the tree behind
5 North green will bring justified concern from the members.
It is not one that we wanted to loose. Unfortunately, recent
wind damage severely damaged a major limb, splitting the
tree all the way to the trunk area. This results in an extremely
dangerous situation of immediate concern. Removal at this time is
an absolute necessity….there is no option. We apologize for
any inconvenience we may cause during the procedure.
