Client:: Koll Development Company
Location:: Plano, Texas
Geography:: Hardiness Zone 8a
Type:: Commercial Property
Project Requirements:: Koll Development and landscape architecture firm, TBG Partners, had an abundance of existing onsite specimen live oaks, red oaks, cedar elms, savannah hollies, and crepe myrtles to work with. The sizes of the transplant material ranged from 8 to 20 caliper inches. To tackle the project, Environmental Design utilized the 80" truck mounted spade, as well as the 10' and 14' patented hydraulic tree spades.
Project Process:: Given a very aggressive project schedule to adhere to, Environmental Design expeditiously established onsite holding yards for (26) savannah hollies, (10) giant live oaks, and (25) crepe myrtles. The initial phase of the project only called for the trees to remain in holding for 4-5 weeks before being transplanted into their new homes within the renovated landscape.
Project Solution:: The project is just approaching Phase 1 completion with great success. Environmental Design looks forward to partnering with Koll Development on the future phases.
