Big Trees Inc Saves School Memorial Trees

Tree Transplanting Company Helps Save Memorial Trees Mid Renovations

SNOHOMISH, WA: Big Trees Inc., (, a tree transplanting company and tree nursery in the Seattle area, recently took part in a project to assist a school in rescuing a number of memorial trees of great importance to the community. The trees were in danger due to an upcoming construction project, however, Big Trees Inc. was successfully able to relocate the trees and they are now doing very well.

Big Trees Inc was contacted in December 2020 by a school district in the Puget Sound area regarding 6 memorial trees that were in the way of an upcoming construction project. The trees were planted to memorialize students and staff who had passed away and, needless to say, the trees held great sentimental value to many of the students, staff and surrounding community. The school district had this particular campus slated for a large remodel, but there was no way to fit the project into the existing landscape without damaging the memorial trees. Realizing this, the school district reached out to Big Trees for assistance in safely relocating the trees.

Big Trees staff came to the site and evaluated the trees and the area they were to be relocated to. Based on their initial assessment the trees were very good candidates for transplanting and would be able to be moved safely and successfully. The move was scheduled for after the holidays, when the trees are decorated every year by friends and family for Christmas. Once the new planting area and trees were ready, Big Trees carefully dug up, wrapped in burlap and moved each tree to their new location. The trees were then successfully planted. The school district was very pleased with the skill and dedication of the Big Trees team in taking care of the trees.

Nancy Penrose, owner of Big Trees Inc., stated: “When you have a job where the trees involved are so important, you want to take extra care. And in doing so, we make sure every time that the job is done right so that the trees can really flourish. This job was no exception, it went very well! Factually, that level of care is what we put into every job we do, which is why we are able to help so many people.”
