MADISON - Workers
have started removing nearly 140 dead or dying evergreen trees at
Peninsula State Park Golf Course in Door County.
The Department of
Natural Resources says a 2011 application of a broadleaf herbicide
damaged the trees. The agency says federal environmental officials
had approved the herbicide but later stopped its sale after
determining it damages evergreen trees.
say 139 trees on the golf course are dead or dying and it could
take a month to remove them all. They say the golf course is
slated to remain open through Nov. 2 but the removal work could
force some holes or fairways to close temporarily.
