Tree Preservation Project Planned for Historic Mercer Island

Transplanting Planned for the Trees on the Island as Reconstruction Begins

SEATTLE, WA: Big Trees Inc., (http://bigtreesupply.com) a tree transplanting and tree nursery company servicing the Seattle metropolitan area, has recently been contracted to perform the tree transplant project at the Coval House estate located on Mercer island. The property is scheduled for salvage, demolition and reconstruction as numerous residences, bringing into question the standing of many trees on the property. The decision came that while some trees would remain in their original location, there are a number of trees and shrubs that would be moved to another location on the property. Big Trees, Inc. was chosen to head the project and properly transplant the trees to their new locations.

The Coval House on Mercer Island is a large estate which has been renowned for its beautiful and unique architecture, as well as its incredible gardens and expansive scale. When the 5 acre property changed hands, the new owner recognized the beauty and aesthetic value the existing trees brought to the land. Big Trees, Inc. was asked to step in to perform the transplanting process to ensure no harm came to the trees involved as they made their way to their new positions.

Nancy Penrose, owner of Big Trees, Inc., stated, “There will be some large Styrax, Japanese Maples and a number of evergreen shrubs being transitioned to new locations on the property, and we have been working with the current ownership to find good positions for these beautiful trees. We are very happy to see that these plants are going to get to coexist with the new development, and we’re looking forward to a smooth process.”

Nancy Penrose is the owner of Big Trees Inc. (http://www.bigtreesupply.com), located in Snohomish, WA, in the Seattle area.
