Treacherous Mountain Tree Transplantation a Total Success

Big Trees Inc. Beats Snow and Difficult Mountain Pass In Tree Transplantation

SEATTLE, WA: Big Trees Inc., (, a tree transplantation and tree nursery company in the Seattle area, recently engaged in a project transplanting trees up a mountain pass to plant them near a newly developed neighborhood near a ski resort. The company’s team was successful in the tree installation despite many obstacles.

The company was contacted by a resident near a ski resort who wanted a more natural landscape in an area affected by some neighborhood development. The company selected 3 large Douglas Fir trees for the project. The trees were approximately 16’-18’ tall, and weighed around 1000 pounds each.

The tree moving project was on a tight deadline, needing to be completed before winter season and the first snow. The access was difficult, and each tree was planted carefully into the transplant area. The trees were successfully planted on time, and the company was happy to report the trees were doing very well in their new environment and the homeowner was thrilled with the outcome.

Nancy Penrose, owner of Big Trees Inc., stated: “We’re very pleased with the outcome of this one, particularly since the transplant was into the high country this late time of year. We don’t get many projects where we have to head up into the mountains. Our project manager did an excellent job and no harm came to any of the trees throughout the process.”

Nancy Penrose is the owner of Big Trees Inc. (, located in Snohomish, WA, in the Seattle area. The company is one of the largest tree nurseries in the Seattle area with over 120,000 trees available in over 300 varieties.
