Client:: MGM Mirage
Location:: Biloxi, Mississippi
Geography:: Hardiness Zone 8b
Project Requirements:: Steve Wynn's vision for the Beau Rivage Resort in Biloxi, Mississippi was to create a dramatic tree-lined entrance reminiscent of the grand entrances of southern plantations. Environmental Design was called in to locate and transplant the trees necessary to achieve the vision.
Project Process:: Environmental Design located 22 matched Live Oaks (Quercus virginiana) within a 100-mile radius of the resort that met the exacting specifications -30' tall with a 30' spread and a 24" trunk caliper. Trees were root pruned, harvested, transported, and planted along the resort's grand entrance.
