Watch out for moving trees

Watch out for moving trees on campus. On January 27 and 28, the Landscaping Services Department will be relocating several trees from the site of the new business schools building to other locations on campus.

The new business schools building will be constructed at the intersection of Carroll Weathers Drive and Wingate Road, north east of Wait Chapel.  The new building has been designed to protect most of the mature oaks and other species in that location, but a few trees would be lost – if not transplanted.

In accordance with the recently published Tree Care Plan, and as a demonstration of Wake Forest’s commitment to sustainability, several trees will be removed and replanted elsewhere on campus.

Most of the transplanted trees will be replanted at the new Welcome Center and Admissions building.  Some trees will also be replanted at the new South Hall.

The trees will be relocated by a professional tree relocation company to ensure their best chance to thrive at their new locations. A large tree spade will be used to remove smaller trees.  A 24” diameter oak will be transplanted using a trenching method that protects most of the roots from damage. The large oak will then be loaded on a flatbed truck and moved to the Welcome Center for replanting.

Please contact David Davis or Jim Mussetter at 758-4622 if you have any questions.
