An Instant Look for the Landscape!

The Landscape Operations Team is challenged many times to provide instant, mature landscapes prior to the PLAYERS.   One way for us to accomplish the instant look we desire is to plant large, mature trees or shrubs using a tree spade. For the new restroom being constructed at PLAYERS Stadium #17 by the TOUR’s Design/Construction Team, we planted three large Live Oaks, Quercus virginiana, with a 90” tree spade.  The specifications for the trees were 8” caliper, 25’ in height and 15’ spread.
