Client: Harvest Partners
Location: Dallas, Tx
Geography: Hardiness Zone 8a
Type: Mixed Use
Project Requirements: Harvest Partners envisioned a mature landscape for their mixed use development project. They asked Environmental Design to help preserve the most attractive specimens existing on the property in order to achieve their landscaping objectives.
Project Process: Environmental Design established two temporary, irrigated holding yards at opposite ends of the property. One was used for 9" - 13" cedar elms and specimen crepe myrtles, which were transplanted using our 10' hydraulic spade. The second yard was dedicated to (25) giant red oaks, live oaks, and cedar elms. The 14' tree spade was used for the onsite transplants.
Project Solution: The native trees are safely preserved in the holding yards, and will remain under the care and supervision of Environmental Design until being re-transplanted into their final home in the permanent landscape.
Location: Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Type: Mixed Use
Project Requirements: Environmental Design has been tasked with locating, procuring, harvesting, transporting and installing over 200 large specimen trees for the initial landscape installation. The search for the trees that would satisfy the design requirements set forth by Houston, TX based landscape architects SWA group took EDI around the world.
Project Process: The trees have been sourced, harvested and now reside in a consolidated holding nursery. The trees will be transported later this year to the Port of Dubai where they will be prepared for installation shortly thereafter.
