Mall management

John Martin of Eastern Tree Company (above) helps in the removal of one of 21 diseased or hollow trees from Furman’s main mall and Milford Mall. The trees, which were removed during the Christmas holidays, were mulched and used on university grounds. The culling is part of a landscape management program designed to improve the health and beauty of the scenic malls. The program also includes irrigation, mulching and replacing the existing Bermuda grass with fescue. Ronnie Oliver (below), owner of Environmental Landscaping, digs an irrigation ditch. The existing Bermuda grass will be killed and replaced with fescue, a cool weather grass, early this fall.
