Apple's Ambitious Tree Planting Plans

Large Trees Relocated to the New Apple Campus

The construction of the new Apple Campus in Cupertino is almost done. The landscaping of the area is designed by OLIN and Apple hired arborist Dave Muffly from Stanford University to cultivate the natural environment around the campus. There will be 8000 trees around the campus from 309 varieties of indigenous species. 1000 original trees of the site that were removed to make way for the construction will be planted back into the site. In addition, some 4600 trees are grown in nurseries specifically for the Apple campus. Judging from the photos in a MacGeneration article there are some huge trees that are relocated to the site. VentureBeat wrote an interesting article about the Apple’s ambitious tree planting plans and the ”instant-nature-landscaping” for the campus.
