Large Tree Transplant Job Successfully Completed in Northwest Washington State

SNOHOMISH, WA: Big Trees Inc. (, a tree transplant company in the Seattle area, was recently contacted for a job of planting new trees around a large property. In total, Big Trees ended up planting over 500 trees around the landscape.

The homeowners had owned their 20-acre property for over 40 years. However, trouble started when a neighboring piece of property was sold to developers. The neighboring property had previously been full of native growth and there had never been problems. But with the property sold, the land had been almost completely cleared of growth to make way for development of 300 new homes. The result was that very little growth was left between the homeowner’s piece and the new development.

The homeowners were concerned as the noise from the construction crews was disruptive, and construction was predicted to take 2 years to complete. What used to be a peaceful, private environment for these homeowners literally disappeared almost overnight. The homeowners called Big Trees to come in to resolve the situation by installing layers of new trees which would provide both a visual privacy screen, and effectively cancel out the noise.

Big Trees installed layers of different trees, mostly Laurels and Cedars of different varieties. The trees are of fast-growing varieties, with the result that it won’t be long before privacy is completely restored. “The noise of the construction is still there,” said the homeowner, “but it is reduced and the larger cedars are already covering up the new roads and structures.”

“We met onsite with the homeowner and picked strategic places in front of windows to plant larger cedars and create instant privacy,” said Nancy Penrose, owner of Big Trees.
“After we had those in place, we filled in the other areas with layers of Excelsa Cedars and Laurels. We used different heights to create a more natural look. In 5 years, you won’t even know there is a large new neighborhood behind them!”
