Large Tree Installation

The University of Alabama needed two large magnolia trees in a key area to frame the entrance of the old Bryce Hospital. There are plans for the old hospital to be transformed into additional classrooms for the University. During delivery and installation, a series of tornadoes struck the area and Urban Forestry Works had to react quickly to shelter the trees overnight to avoid any damage before installation the next day. The trees were unharmed and now add to the beautiful campus landscape.
