Growth and re-use: New Burke landscaping

Over the next three years, the Native Plant Nursery at Oxbow Farm & Conservation Center in Carnation, Washington, will grow some 70,000 native plants—many of them from seed collected in Washington state—for the New Burke Museum landscape, designed by Gustafson Guthrie Nichol. Native plants, a once-ubiquitous but now-declining component of landscapes across Washington, are of great interest to gardeners, scientists, ethnobotanists, indigenous peoples, and advocates for sustainability and environmental well-being.

While the landscape design for the New Burke calls for planting three new, native trees for every two trees removed, construction of the New Burke will require the removal of some trees.
