Red Oak at SCC

I carried water to this little Red Oak tree just off the #4 fairway at the Golf Course this afternoon. I planted the tree 3 years ago and it has had a rough time getting started. It has been hit by a mower after having had the bark cut earlier with a weed eater. It seems to be recovering but felt it needed some extra water going into the winter. It is in an area where it gets some water from the Course sprinklers. It is close to one of the lakes so I just dipped water out of it to put on the tree. With the number of Pine trees being removed, we need all the broad leaf trees we can get to maintain the aesthetics of the area.
