METRO East Corridor Tree Preservation and Mitigation
Knudson was engaged by Omega Engineers to provide tree protection and landscape architectural services for the expansion of METRO’s LRT network in the East End. Due to limits within the right of way for new tree planting, Knudson worked closely with engineers, neighborhood groups, and City officials to establish off site mitigation sites. Trees and other plantings were installed in roadway esplanades, City parks and along hike and bike trails in the East End.
Knudson LP, helped to facilitate the ‘Adopt an Esplanade’ program for areas that received new landscaping. Knudson, LP also provided planting design services for several of the station areas along the corridor.
