Size Chart

Shade Trees (Single Trunk):
Shade trees (single trunk) are measured by caliper. The caliper of a tree is measured by the thickness (diameter) of the trunk, so a 2.0 inch caliper tree means that the trunk is 2 inches in diameter. The caliper is always measured 6 inches above the ground on the trunk of the tree. The term "single trunk" means that the tree has one trunk from the ground to the lower branches- the lower branches in shade trees are typically pruned at between 5 and 6 feet above the ground. Below are the approximate heights for shade trees based on the caliper size easiest!


Ornamental Trees (Single Trunk):


Ornamental Trees (single trunk) are measured by caliper. The caliper of a tree is measured by the thickness (diameter) of the trunk, so a 2.0 inch caliper tree means that the trunk is 2 inches in diameter. The caliper is always measured 6 inches above the ground on the trunk of the tree. The term "single trunk" means that the tree has one trunk from the ground to the lower branches- the lower branches in shade trees are typically pruned at between 5 and 6 feet above ground. Below are the approximate heights for shade trees based on the caliper size



Multi-Stem Clump Trees (Multiple Trunks):


Multi-Stem Clump Trees (Multiple Trunks) are measured by height from the ground to the top branches of the tree. A multi-stem clump tree is a single tree with multiple trunks coming out of the ground, or a close grouping of trees with multiple trunks. Typically multi-stem clump trees have branches starting out at or near ground level; however, these branches can be pruned up as desired. An 8 foot tall multi-stem clump tree means that the size of the tree will be approximately 8 feet from the top of the root ball (top of the ground) to the top branches at the time of planting.


Evergreen Trees:

Evergreen Trees are measured by height from the ground to the top branches of the tree. Typically, evergreen trees have branches starting out at or near ground level; however, these branches can be pruned up as desired. It is extremely common for the bottom branches of evergreen trees to suffer dieback, and need pruned out, after transplant- and as they grow. A 7-8 foot tall evergreen tree means that the size of the tree will range between 7 to 8 feet tall from the top of the root ball (top of the ground) to the top branches at the time of planting.
