King Landscapes were recently engaged by Devcorp Australia to transplant a 60-tonne Fig Tree for their new “Tallowwood Estate” development at The Gap, Brisbane Queensland.

The developers had decided that this majestic tree was being retained as a feature tree to enhance the entrance to the new estate.

With the tree being so large, we planned the transplant in stages over 4 months to ensure the best possible outcome for the tree.

Using King Landscapes’ High-Pressure Water Unit & Vacuum excavation we were able to prepare the root balls for the transplant. We undertook this process slowly over 4 months and this aided in reducing the stress to the tree.

Working with heavy machinery we slowly commenced transplanting the Fig into the required position. Undertaking the transplanting of a tree this size, safely and successfully requires methodical planning.

With the Fig in place, we now look forward to seeing this tree continue to flourish and the landscape impact it will bring to the entrance of The Tallowwood Estate. 

As part of our after service, King Landscapes is providing a maintenance schedule to Devcorp.

We conduct regular site visits to check the health and vigour of the tree. There has been no sign of stress or die back to this beautiful tree. The canopy is full of new budding growth.
