Famous Early Piety wisdom:
“Old trees are like old dogs, old parakeets, and old horses. They’ve already got a set way that they want to do things. During a drought you give them a little more water. You only trim the dead wood, make the tree look nice, but you don’t alter the shape.”
The proper way to plant a tree: “Plant the root ball about 10% too high. Where the roots come off the bottom of the tree, that’s called the root crown area. That has to be exposed to the air. If you plant a tree and it looks like a fence post, you’ve got it too deep.”
Be sure to say “hello” to Early when you see him at the club, or schedule some lessons with him to tune up your game! Early can be reached at 904-993-7419.
