Saving Historic Trees at Seattle University

Big Trees, Inc. helps kick-off a major construction project at Seattle University. Seattle U., known for its extensive landscape and many specimen trees, saves (8) large and historic trees. The A.A. Lemieux Library remodel required a complete demo of the area directly adjacent to the existing front steps. The trees, (2) large laceleaf maples, (2) 12-14” caliper Arizona Blue Cypress, (2) 18’ tall Bird’s Nest Spruce and (2) 12”caliper Threadleaf Cypress had historical connections to the Kubota Gardens in Seattle. All were successfully relocated to new homes within the campus.

“Big Trees, Inc. crews worked very hard under very challenging site conditions and did a great job getting these large trees transplanted successfully.”
