Housing Developer Gets Help from Big Trees Inc.

Housing Project Receives Addition of Several Large Trees Throughout Property

SEATTLE, WA: Big Trees Inc., (http://bigtreesupply.com/) a tree transplanting and tree nursery company located in the Seattle metropolitan area, recently assisted with the tree transplant of several large cedars at the site of a housing development project in Kirkland, Washington. The project involved digging the trees, balling them up and moving them from one area to another on the site of the development project. The trees were replanted and staked carefully and the property owners were then given guidelines for the proper care and watering of the trees.

The trees were requested to be transplanted throughout the property in order to add a sense of scale and greenery to the project. The project involved four tall Alaskan Weeping Cedars, each approximately 25′ in height. A large forklift was used to transplant the trees, and the company reported that there was no stress on the trees during moving. The trees were then planted in locations throughout the property with great care. Big Trees Inc. further saw to the proper watering the trees would require. The tree transplanting company reported the trees did well in the transplanting process and could be expected to thrive in their new environment given proper watering.

Nancy Penrose, owner of Big Trees Inc., stated: “The trees did very well, especially considering the summer heat. The trees involved in the move were quite large, and generally it is harder to move larger, older trees, but proper care was taken to see that the trees were handled very carefully. We will be stopping in soon to check on how the trees are doing and see that the watering instructions are being carried out correctly. The trees look great in the landscape, and we hope they will be there to enhance the beauty of the property for a long time to come.”
