Default Chula GC tree cutting

They are in the process of removing a beautiful live oak on the Chula Vista golf course near the second green. WHY? I love the park like look on this course, and I hope they aren’t planning on removing more trees.

Yes -- definitely check. Too many people think trees are disposable and they aren't!

Why are they taking out this particular tree?

Often times rules don't matter.

Don't you recall trees being removed on common ground a few years ago?

You know exactly to what I'm referring.
So much for "rules!"

Where would the golf course, which is owned by the CCDD, have to get the permit from to cut the tree down?.

I’m sure there must have been a reason and the golf course probably got permission. They ground the stump into the ground, almost can’t tell a tree had been there. Still makes me sad because I love the big shade trees. My guess is that many people hit this tree so maybe it opened up the fairway better.
Permit? Yes or ???

I did not see this tree either before or after it was taken out.

I would hope there was a good reason for removing it but it's a shame when a viable old tree is removed; that is why I and others were curious as to why it was taken out.

One would assume the county gave permission to cut the tree down but in TV, I have found that you can "assume" nothing.

If the reason for this tree removal was because so many people hit it, logic tells me that all they had to do was improve their game!

In addition to the county, perhaps?
