OoI where can one find that R&A statement? Does it mean that a freshly planted mature tree cannot be protected? Do you mean that the LR is only invalid regarding the trees in question? The stakes remain obstructions.
It may not matter. The R&A have said that the Local Rule giving telief from staked (or otherwise marked) trees must only be used if the tree is both â€˜youngâ€™ and â€˜in need of protectionâ€™.
I would suggest the LR is no longer valid.
In your examples, it sounds to me that the committee are no longer concerned about protecting the trees, whatever their age. I would say they donâ€™t qualify.

The approved specimen LR makes no mention of tree height. It simply requires that the tree(s) be identified in some particular way.
the R&A wording isnt what you need to look at , its the exact wording of the local rule adopted by YOUR club â€¦.
basically , theres 4 likely possible local rules ..
Free from trees under 2 clublengths high
Free from staked trees
Free from trees under 2 clublengths high AND staked

OoI where can one find that R&A statement?The ruling came to me from the R&A in response to a question I asked them about setting up our course. I was given permission to publish it on the Leith Society. We use small holly bushes to indicate the 150 yard distance. Most bushes are now over 10 years old. But we had 6 new holes built and planted new bushes which we staked. Some members said it was confusing to have some staked and others not. They also said that it would be against the RoG to declare them to be immovable obstructions as they do not satisfy the definition. However a stake or tensioning wires would of course be obstructions in their own right. But RC's comment is then relevant.

This is a perennial problem and there is no universal answer. In the normal course of a club's life such rulings probably do not matter too much as all players will be treated the same (ie in equity). If major (ie non internal competitions) are held on a course there will normally be an inspection by one or more ROs before the event to check on course marking and LRs. Most ROs do a fair amount of networking so the information from such rulings is likely to get about. The really 'big boys' like Paramor are in touch with pretty well everything that the R&A/USGA say that might be significant. Of course the R&A are not making a new rules just clarifying the situation for normal amateur clubs and players.
how do clubâ€™s apart from yours, know about it.
