Big Trees Inc Sets Up Emergency Privacy Screen for Client

Homeowners Relieved at Addition of New Privacy Trees Screen

SEATTLE, WA: Big Trees Inc., ( a tree transplanting company and tree nursery in the Seattle area, recently assisted a local homeowner with a privacy screening emergency. The issue came up when a previously vacant lot began home development, and the property sold. Big Trees Inc. assisted the homeowner in setting up a privacy tree screen between the homes.

Big Trees assisted the builder in choosing a tall variety of tree that remains columnar as it grows to the height range needed for the privacy screening of both properties. 18’ Crimson Spire Oak trees were used in the project, planted in measured spacing along the edge of the side yard. These trees were recommended by Big Trees Inc. because of their ability to hold their leaves well into the fall, and thick branch structure. Even when the trees drop their leaves, they are still providing a privacy screen between the homes. The project encountered many unforeseen difficulties, such as some trees needing to be moved and replanted to allow access for the crews and equipment necessary to accomplish the project.

Todd Holmes, operations manager of Big Trees Inc., stated: “Big Trees worked hard to assist the homeowners in their predicament, and in spite of the summer months and impending sale of the home, the project was organized and executed to the client’s expectations.”

Nancy Penrose, owner of Big Trees Inc., stated: “This project had a few complications, such as the unexpected additional trees needing to be moved and the short overall deadline. But it all went very well. The privacy screen is up and in addition to the trees themselves being a beautiful, both neighbors can now enjoy the privacy provided.”
