The LDS Church chose for a prospective temple building a site that was the landscape grounds of a former residential estate. The site has great topographical relief changes, 250+ mature canopy trees, and prize understory specimen trees. The site is surrounded by major highways, mature woodlands, and, affluent residences. Extensive screening for the latter was
legally mandatory and thus high priority in the development of the Schematic Landscape Plan.
