The project was undertaken when Big Trees was called in by the company to add more foliage to the grounds. A large number of Alaskan Weeping Cedars and Giant Blue Sequoia trees, each measuring between 16’ and 18’ tall, were brought in. Big Trees planted 24 of both varieties, bringing the project to a total of 48 trees for the new landscape. The trees were placed at a 15’ spacing, allowing for a wide screen around the lot. Each tree was also accompanied by individual drip irrigation to the tree’s root ball to keep the trees watered properly. All aspects of the installation came off successfully, and the company reports the trees are doing very well in their new environment.
Todd Holmes, Big Trees’ Project Manager, stated: “Trees always add a level of peace and nature to an otherwise bland environment like a parking lot, and we hope there will be a long lasting enjoyment of these trees by the company’s employees for the foreseeable future.”
Nancy Penrose, owner of Big Trees Inc., stated: “The move was a bold one, on the part of the company. It certainly shows a very clear statement that they support the environment and wish to increase the amount of greenery in their corner of the planet. We were very happy to help them on it and happy to see that everything went smoothly during the transplanting and in setting up the irrigation for the trees. The end result is something spectacular to see.”
