Leave the trees alone!!

Playing at the Technical College here in BG, I noticed that someone took it upon themselves to cut down a growing oak tree because it was in "their" way. Needless to say, I was less that pleased to see this. Who the hell do some people think they are?? Leave the trees alone, they are there for a reason. Stupid noob, 12 pack jerkoffs.

If it's something unique that doesn't cause a hazard or isn't detrimental to the course in anyway, I say leave it.

Otherwise, take it out.

I've seen some really cool holes where a tree has fallen, creating a "window" to hit.

I hate to see a tree fall from weather or death that really "made" that particular hole. Best thing to do in my opinion would be to plant a new tree in it's spot. But then some other backwards idiot would just rip it out of the ground.

The tree in question was one that really forced you to play around it. once the tree had grown, it would have been a really cool hole. But now, thanks to the hillbilly jerkoff with an axe, there is just a poorly hacked nub.

Sorry. I hit that tree with my boss and it chopped it down in one stroke. That's one sharp disk!

Just hang a PVC pipe in the place of the tree...

Same thing happened here, so they put the pipe in the way. The hole would be really easy if that wasn't there.

I know, not exactly a the best way to replace a tree, especially if multiple branches were in the way, but it worked here.
