Featured Project

Oregon Zoo Elephant Habitat Grand Opening

When the elephant herd walked into their new space on 12/16, they seemed to be captivated by all the interesting things to see and do. AKS is proud to have been part of the team to help make this new home a reality for the Oregon Zoo herd and we were on hand to help celebrate with them on opening day. AKS had certified arborists on hand throughout construction to make sure trees near the construction activities were cared for and protected. Our surveyors were out doing the construction staking as well. Check out the making of the new Oregon Zoo exhibit here. Read our full project description here.
