Big Trees Inc. Assists in Seahawks Opening Day Festivities

Big Trees Inc. Transplanted and Preserved Trees to Make Way for Concert Stage

SEATTLE, WA: Big Trees Inc., ( a tree transplanting and tree nursery company located in the Seattle metropolitan area, was recently called upon to move several large trees in preparation for the Seattle Seahawks’ opening day festivities on September 4th.

Several Japanese maples and rhododendrons stood in the planting bed at Century Link Field, exactly in the location planned for the pre-game concert stage. Due to Big Trees Inc.’s long experience in tree transplanting, the company was asked to come and remove the trees in root balls before the stage construction began.

The trees were put in root balls and transported by Big Trees Inc. expert tree movers. At the nursery, they were then placed into a storage bed and kept watered. Subsequently, the stage construction proceeded to completion, and the live pre-game concert was held—both kicking off the 2014 NFL season, and recognizing Seattle Seahawks’ achievement as reigning Super Bowl champions. Once the festivities were complete and the stage was taken down, Big Trees Inc. again put the stored trees into root balls and returned them to their planting bed, reinstalling them in their original positions.

“We were glad to play our role in this Seattle-wide celebration, and preserve the beautiful trees of Century Link Field in the bargain, so they could be put back in their original place after the ceremony!” says Nancy Penrose, owner of Big Trees, Inc. “GO HAWKS!”
