Special-Project Installation Will Become “Sustainable” Christmas Tree for Facilit
“This installation at Goodall was a challenge, even with our expertise,” said Salmon Falls’ owner Mark Pendergast. “It is pretty unheard-of to plant a tree of this size, as most trees we source and install come in between eight and eighteen feet tall. Ultimately we used a tree from our own nursery, because our first attempt at shipping a specimen from NH for the hospital was not successful–trees can be very sensitive. We pride ourselves on our ability to take on these types of large scale landscaping projects.”
The evergreen had to be hand-dug from SFN&L’s nursery, as the tree ball was too large for the customary digging by spade. Salmon Falls Nursery and Landscaping then transported it on a flatbed truck to Goodall Hospital. The entire installation process took three days.
Patsy Aprile, President & CEO of Goodall Hospital, said: “We are delighted to now have this magnificent outdoor centerpiece at Goodall Hospital.
Every holiday season, it will be a ‘sustainable’ Christmas tree that is sure to be a show-stopper for our patients, visitors, and staff alike. We had a vision of an impressively grand fir tree at Goodall’s front entrance, and Salmon Falls Nursery and Landscaping made it happen for us.”
Goodall invites the general public, as well as everyone at the hospital, to the first lighting of the new tree on Tuesday, December 11th, at 5:30 p.m.
