Tree Transplant Company Restores Local Landscape

Big Trees Inc. Restores Trees And Rectifies Safety Hazard for Homeowners

SNOHOMISH, WA: Big Trees Inc, (, a tree nursery and transplanting company in Northwest Washington, recently assisted a homeowner with a situation where most of the trees in their yard were affected by disease and posed a safety hazard to the occupants. Big Trees helped deal with the diseased trees, and successfully completed a new tree installation project to restore the landscape of the house.

Big Trees was contacted by a homeowner who needed to take down fifteen 100’ Douglas Fir trees. The trees had become diseased and were posing a safety threat to the home. While the homeowners were willing to take down the trees to handle the safety problem, they were devastated at the loss of privacy that would be caused by doing so. When they realized that Big Trees provided large stock trees and would be able to recreate the privacy screen around their yard, the homeowners were ecstatic.

Big Trees first hired a tree removal company to take out the large trees and their stumps. After 2 weeks the Douglas Firs had each been successfully removed from the yard. Big Trees then brought in eight 16’ Nordman Fir trees. The trees were brought in by large flatbed truck and were moved into their new homes via a large forklift. Although the loss of the Douglas Firs was devastating to the homeowners, a unique and very fortuitous situation came from installing the new trees: the Douglas Firs’ large canopies had been dwarfing 6 Japanese Maples for years. With their removal, the added space will allow the Japanese Maples to grow and thrive. It also opened up more light for the entire property. The addition of the new Nordman Firs allowed the homeowners to space out the trees for better future growth while retaining the privacy for their yard.

Nancy Penrose, owner of Big Trees Inc., stated: “It was such a win-win situation! When the homeowners realized that not only would they no longer have to worry about the potential damage to their home from the decaying trees, they also found that the new landscape would allow the Japanese Maples to grow and thrive. We couldn’t have been happier with the outcome.”
