Moving trees in Koblenz: The planned construction of a new bridge meant that 45 trees (29 limes, 3 ornamental cherries, 11 Japanese pagoda trees and 2 tulip trees) had to be relocated on the site between Koblenz Castle and Pfaffendorf Bridge. The trees that were worthy of preservation were distributed to three new locations around the city by Team Opitz using the OPTIMAL 3000 and OPTIMAL 2500 tree spades.
The recreational area at the Gülser Moselbogen, the Herberichstraße and in the Lehrhohl will now be made more beautiful with new shade trees. Urban tree manager Stephan Dally says: “It is the most sustainable thing you can do. The trees are still in good condition, it would be crazy to cut them down.”
