Client:: Firestone Country Club
Location:: Akron, Ohio
Geography:: Hardiness Zone 5b
Type:: Golf Course Construction
Project Requirements:: As part of a renovation project by the Firestone Country Club, Tom Fazio was called in to modernize the course to be consistent with modern golf equipment. Environmental Design was called in to both maintain and augment the tree canopy on the new course layout.
Project Process:: Using our patented 10' spade, Environmental Design transplanted on site and brought in from a location 40 miles away over 40 specimen trees (Black Tupelo, Nyssa sylvatica and Willow Oaks, Quercus phellos) to frame the new course layout.
