Big Trees Inc. Helps Family Preserve Memorial Tree

SNOHOMISH, WA: Big Trees Inc., (, tree transplanting and tree nursery company in the Seattle area, recently helped a family save an important memorial tree. The family, locals in Snohomish, had a memorial tree dedicated to their son and had to find a way to preserve the tree despite a planned move. Big Trees helped relocate the tree successfully so it could be celebrated by the family for years to come.

The company was first approached by the family in the Fall of 2020 about moving the memorial tree. The family had dedicated the tree, a 20’ Blossoming Cherry Tree, in the memory of their son who died at birth 8 years ago. However, the family was planning on moving, but not to a permanent location, so they were not able to take the tree with them. The family contacted the City of Snohomish and were able to work out an alternate solution, moving the tree to one of the city’s parks.

Once the sale of the house was completed the logistics of the tree transplanting could also be finalized. In late December 2020, Big Trees Inc., was able to dig up the memorial tree and move it to a relatively new park in Snohomish, in an ideal location for a large canopy tree. The family was extremely happy with the new location and grateful for Big Trees’. help.

“The cherry tree extraction turned out really well, and the tree looks fantastic in its new location,” said Nancy Penrose, owner of Big Trees. “I love it when we can help people save trees AND preserve memories. This was win-win for all parties involved.”
