Developer Contacts Big Trees Inc for Tree Transplant Project

SEATTLE, WA: Big Trees Inc., ( a tree transplanting and tree nursery company in the Seattle area, recently completed the transplantation of a large tree onto a development property in Kirkland, Washington. The company took the tree carefully from its original location and successfully brought it to its new site on the property.

The developer of a large property in Kirkland had a tree in mind to go at the entrance to the estate, a 20’ tall Frontier Elm. The problem the developer faced was not knowing the correct way to handle the tree installation so it would not be damaged in transport. Big Trees Inc was called in to move the tree, lifting it by crane. Once in place, the Big Trees crew worked to settle the tree so it would grow optimally in its new surroundings.

Nancy Penrose, owner of Big Trees, Inc., stated, “Our team members are so good at making these projects work out! There are numerous ways to damage these large trees in handling, and if not done properly, the tree can be killed with a misplaced strap that strips the bark off or cuts the root ball too deep for the tree to survive. The developer was happy to have a successful placement of the tree, and we were happy to help!”

Nancy Penrose is the owner of Big Trees Inc. (, located in Snohomish, WA, in the Seattle area.
