Client:: Polo Ranch - Lenner Development
Location:: Scotts Valley California
Type:: Transplant on site two quercus agrifolia 18-20” caliper
Project Requirements:: Lennar Development contacted EDI in June of 2016 to prepare and move two 18-20” quercus agrifolia. These trees were slated for protection in their Environmental Impact Study. Due to severe drought conditions, we initiated a hydration period of 3 weeks prior to root pruning. Upon root pruning and encapsulation we also encountered rock at a depth on only 12-14”. This proved to be challenging, however with perseverance and the correct tools the trees were ready to be moved on July 26th, 2016. The trees are now planted on their permanent locations with a dedicated water source (recycled water) and will monitored and maintained by EDI for two years.
