Big Trees Inc. Helps University In Field Remodeling Project

University Village Shopping District To Maintain Magnolia Grandiflora Tree in Center

SEATTLE, WA: Big Trees Inc. (, tree transplanting company and tree nursery servicing the Seattle area has helped a downtown Seattle high-end shopping district, University Village, maintain a large Magnolia Grandiflora slated for leveling.

The shopping district, in undergoing construction in some areas, would have been forced to level the tree. However, with the help of Big Trees Inc., they were able instead to find a new home for the massive 20 foot tall Magnolia (weighing in at 8,000 lb) tree in the shopping district, now situated in the west side entrance of the center. In addition, Big Trees Inc. also relocated numerous small, 6 inch, 25-30 year old Japanese Maples in the center, moving them to the center’s northeast entrance.

Ross Latham, owner and founder of Big Trees Inc., stated: “Unfortunately it is all too common that a remodeling project threatens the life of the local tree in a public or private landscape. We’d rather see a tree find a new home if we can help it. And we can. This particular project turned out very well for all involved, and the visitors of the shopping district can be happy their familiar landmark isn’t going anywhere.”
