A large White Pine (was 65 years old) was removed from behind the condos using an oversized crane. You can see by the first photo, a section of the tree is hanging above the building. No new skylight windows were created during this process.
After last night's rain, the total for the last 2 days equates to 2.3". The monthly total is 5.25" While it might sound like a lot, this is considered severe drought for Highlands! Well, I might be exaggerating but when you consider the average January rainfall is 9-10", I feel pretty good about it.
The hope at the croquet lawn is to start digging footers for the rock walls. We have our creek bank stabilization folks, out of Boca Raton, FL, on site today and I'll be posting a lot of photos later this afternoon about that process.

It's during rain events that allows us to see how effective our drainage patterns are. We received about 3/4" of rainfall today and we noticed there are 3 minor areas that need to be modified to get surface water sloped down to specific drainage basins. This was achieved relatively easily by removing the sod and modifying surface grade and then replacing the sod. This is one step closer to enhancing the drainage on #9 fairway.
