Tree Transplant Company Helps Bring Over 200 Trees Onto Property in Seattle

SNOHOMISH, WA: Big Trees Inc, (, a tree nursery and tree transplant company in the Seattle area, recently assisted a homeowner in Seattle with a very large project. The project involved bringing over 200 trees onto the property of a homeowner in Seattle. After careful planning and intensive work from both the company and the homeowner, the project was completed successfully with all parties very happy with the trees in their new home.

Big Trees was contacted by the homeowners of a large old estate in Seattle, located in a busy neighborhood. The homeowners were looking to plant a privacy screen of trees around the property to create an enclosed space of privacy. Initially requesting 100 12’ Leyland cypress trees to be planted, further planning and discussion caused the homeowner to change their plans. The homeowners found Big Trees were able to move some of the larger Rhododendrons and Camilias on the property. This was added to the scope of the work, along with planting 75 Yews and 30 Emerald Greens. With plans finalized, Big Trees began work on the now over 200 tree transplant project.

Prior to planting the trees, the homeowners cleared out large English Laurels and other miscellaneous shrubs and then rebuilt some of the concrete wall and surrounding planting beds. The planting space for the Leyland Cypresses was atop a tall retaining wall, requiring the use of a reach forklift to lift all of the trees up onto the wall. The Big Trees crew then hand carted each tree into place and successfully planted the large trees in place. “There is now a 12’ wall of ‘green’ surround the entire property that looks like it has been there for years,” said Nancy Penrose, owner of Big Trees. “I love the instant impact these trees have made and the homeowner is ecstatic! The homeowners reached out to us over three years ago and there have been quite a few changes in the plan, but it has finally all come together.”
