The Stewartia pseudocamellia was transplanted this week. With a major multi-family structure scheduled to begin construction later this spring, our tree would not have survived the construction as it was only a foot from the property line. We opted to donate the tree to Seattle Parks. They accepted the donation and chose to locate it at the UW Seattle Arboretum, right at the entry to Azalea Way. It has a nice new home. (Note the crane in the background is for the Roosevelt Light Rail Station.)
