5 Live Oaks, 20" Caliper
The obstacle was to reinvent a mature canopy and landscape which would mirror the previous landscape, and do so in time for graduation. University and booster expectations had to be met. There was sentimental value in this project, and it was important to adhere to that.
UFW was able to supply approved trees by the university, and do so in less than three months. It was important to USM to replace substantial trees by graduation, since the entrance had been a main stay for Alumni and Graduates to gather during every graduation. Urban Forestry Works scattered mature 20′-22′ caliper live oaks along the entrance green, and were able to successfully complete the project a week prior to graduation.
