Tree Relocation Commences

Relocation of dozens of large trees began in earnest in late November as the project team mobilizes following a COVID-19 delay. Arborists assist in trimming the trees and making sure they have the greatest chance of survival in their new homes. Arborists also help to identify trees trees that are too old or have disease damage, limiting their likely transplant success. The majority of the transplanted trees will remain on-site, with a few trees finding new homes on other embassy-owned properties in the neighborhood. Trees are essential in mitigating poor air quality, and the project team is committed to preserving trees with the best chances of long term survival.
