Oakmont was originally designed as a treeless golf course. At some point some of the members thought it would be a good idea to plant hundreds of trees. If Fownes (the designer) had seen the trees, he would have designed the course differently.

The trees that were removed were not there originally so it's not really a loss. Trees were added where they didn't belong and then were removed to return the property back to it's original state.

Hopefully something useful or beautiful was made from the wood.

Some of the greatest golf courses in the world don't have a lot of trees. Trees don't necessarily make a good golf course. If a course is designed around trees then it works. However, if a course is designed without trees and trees are later added it may destroy the original intent of the designer.

Makes sense. I did not know that.
