The future of the pine plantations at Trentham Golf Club
There are three small pine plantations at Trentham. They are situated between the 6th and 7th fairways, between the 7th and 8th fairways, and on the hill between the 16th and 17th fairways. The plantations were planted in the early 1980s, with the intention of providing an aesthetic value to the course as well as a long-term timber resource that would provide income to the club.
The committee has had to determine the management these areas and decided to harvest the pines. The contractor will commence harvesting during June 2017.
