Big Trees Inc Overseeing Large Transplant Project On Behalf Of Arboretum Foundation

SEATTLE, WA: Big Trees Inc., ( is currently implementing a large tree transplant project of the Washington Park Arboretum, a large park managed jointly between the City of Seattle and University of Washington. The project is being undertaken on behalf of the The Arboretum Foundation, who are redesigning part of the park and enhancing portions of the planting areas.

The Washington Park Arboretum is a jointly operated area, where the City Of Seattle owns the actual land and the University of Washington owns all of the trees and plant collections. The Arboretum Foundation commissioned the project to enhance the beauty of the Arboretum, including the addition of a new section of the park with an Australian themed garden with plants and trees. They asked Big Trees Inc. to transplant 25 trees to the park and oversee their planting. This includes the moving of 3 large Birch trees and the use of an 90 ton operation crane for moving the large trees.

Ross Latham, owner of Big Trees Inc., stated: “We’re happy to take on such a large project. This isn’t the first time we’ve worked with the University of Washington, they turned to someone they knew they could trust. All of our efforts will go to ensuring these new trees will grow up strong in their new home, and we’ll be very happy to see the enhancement of this beautiful park arboretum.”
