Client:: Colleton River Plantation
Location:: Hilton Head Island, SC
Geography:: Hardiness Zone 8b
Type:: Golf Course Construction
Project Requirements:: When a golf course was proposed to be built on the site of an historic southern plantation, concern was raised over the fate of 8 giant Live Oaks (Quercus virginiana) ranging in size from 28" to 40" caliper. Environmental Design was contacted to propose a plan to preserve these historic trees.
Project Process:: Using the Environmental Design-pioneered roundball method and our 4-point gantry lift system, we transplanted these trees to key locations on the golf course.
