Big Trees Inc. will be Landscaping New Project in Downtown Bellevue

SNOHOMISH, WA: Big Trees Inc. (, a tree transplant and tree nursery company in the Seattle area, has been asked to assist with the landscaping efforts at a significant property being developed in downtown Bellevue. The project involves adding some very tall evergreen trees to the North side of a multi-level parking garage to soften its appearance for the neighbors, as well as adding larger trees to the top levels of the same garage.

A significant number of Fir trees will be integrated into two planting beds on the North side of this garage, most as large as 20’-25’ tall. These trees will add organic motion and distraction from what would otherwise be a large, stark wall with no detail. The trees will be delivered by large trucks and trailers, unloaded by crane to a higher level planter, and handled by an all-terrain forklift to finally meet their planting locations.

There are a number of other Pines and Cedars being taken to the top floor of the parking garage and installed in raised planting beds. These trees will also add to the aesthetic and overall liveliness of this upper level garage layout. It is a bit of a challenge to get these trees to their planting areas as well, as they are quite large to be trafficking up the winding access way through a modern parking garage layout, especially considering all of the ongoing construction activities.

Nancy Penrose, owner of Big Trees, remarks, “It’s a pretty significant project considering the size of trees we are working with, and the limitations of access to get them to their planting locations. Our teamwork with the construction project engineers is pretty key in situations like this, as there are always so many moving parts to contend with. We’re all looking forward to seeing these trees grow up even more over the coming decades.”
