Big Trees Inc. Assists Private School with Tree Transplanting

SNOHOMISH, WA: Big Trees Inc., (, a tree nursery and transplant company, was asked by a large, prominent private school to help transplant Stewartia trees in order to facilitate some remodeling efforts.

When Big Trees was contacted by a landscaper and property manager for the project, they identified the five trees that would be impacted by the remodel. Then, the Big Trees crew mobilized into the site within a few weeks. RootZone anti-shock treatment was applied to the trees to limit the weather and season’s effects on the trees being dug. The crew came back the next day and transplanted the five six-inch caliper measurement trees to new locations throughout the campus. The trees will be monitored and managed in their new locations until they are settled and acclimated.

Nancy Penrose, owner of Big Trees, mentioned: “Salvaging and moving beautiful trees out of harm’s way is one of the most satisfying processes we all get to participate in here at Big Trees. With these all being large Stewartia trees, it really doesn’t get much better than this! We are so happy these trees will get to grow and flower for generations to come!”
