Big Trees Inc. Acquires New Equipment for Increasing Ease of Moving Very Large Trees
SNOHOMISH, WA: Big Trees Inc, (https://www.bigtreesupply.com), a tree nursery and tree transplant company in the Seattle area, recently had a major upgrade to the equipment they use for tree transplants. The company acquired a Toro Dingo TX 1000, a heavy-duty machine capable of carrying large trees through more narrow spaces. This will expand Big Trees’ ability to move larger trees into smaller yards, or yards with limited access into them.
A common problem when transplanting a large tree is having enough access to a landscape site. In the past, Big Trees has sometimes had trouble getting trees into a back yard as this could require at least 6 feet of clearance for the large tree transplant machinery to get through. Sometimes the only solutions are choosing smaller trees for the site or selecting a different site. The Toro Dingo TX 1000 is capable of lifting large caliper trees, all while fitting through a standard 36” gate. This allows them to get larger trees in yards even if access is limited.
“My business has much to do about ‘instant gratification’ and not having to wait for trees to grow to provide the screening or aesthetic wanted,” said Nancy Penrose, owner of Big Trees. “Until now, we have been limited in our abilities to get larger trees into people’s yards. A typical gate is 42” wide and not everybody is willing or able to take down fence panels to create the access we need. Now, we can get right through the gate! I am really looking forward to be able to offer even more options to our customer’s now.”
Nancy Penrose is the owner of Big Trees Inc., located in Snohomish, WA in the Seattle area. The company is one of the largest tree nurseries in the Seattle area with over 120,000 trees available in over 300 varieties. They not only deliver young trees, but also mature trees in a wide range of sizes. Some types of trees available include spring flowering, deciduous, evergreen, and privacy trees. The company also does tree transplanting including large trees. Their blog can be seen at https://bigtreesupply.com/blog/ or https://arboristblog.com/. They can be reached at 360-563-2700.
