New York Plantings Delivers Live Tree to the Penthouse of Well Known Socialite

Over the holidays, New York Plantings delivered a 9.5' living tree to the penthouse of a well known international socialite at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, a mission aligned with New York Plantings "go green" initiative and one that demonstrated their dedication to personalized service.

New York, NY, February 06, 2012 --( It’s said that setting up a living Christmas tree is as simple as carrying it indoors and keeping it watered. It may be relatively simple for most people, but not if your client lives in the penthouse of the New York Mandarin Oriental Hotel. A well-known international socialite, our client requested a living Christmas tree to be delivered to her penthouse and later planted at her New Jersey estate.

It’s estimated that over 30 million Christmas trees are chopped down each year, so the crew at New York Plantings were happy to support this environmentally friendly request. Todd Nappi, owner of New York Plantings, and employee, Ralph Xu, hand picked the perfect tree from an Eastern Long Island nursery. The 9.5’ Douglas fir tree was transported and delivered to the luxury hotel. Weighing close to 500lbs, this job required the expert care of an experienced landscaping team. New York Plantings, known for their gentle and efficient moving of planting and building materials through the most elegant of Manhattan residences, did not disappoint and the tree was installed in its penthouse location ready for its holiday engagement.

As an encore for both New York Plantings and the Douglas fir, the tree will be transported and planted in its new home in New Jersey. This project was both stunning and good for the environment. Once again New York Plantings supported another “Go-green” project in Manhattan. As Todd Nappi stated, “This tree provided treasured memories for the holidays and a cleaner, healthier world. Going green doesn’t get any better than that.”
