Tree Sizes Explained

Most of our trees are measured by girth (circumference) in centimetres at one metre above ground level, eg. 12/14 and 14/16 which conforms to European standards. Fortunately as a rule of thumb the girth size roughly equates to the height in feet. Where the size is indicated as follows: 150/175 this represents the height of the plant material in centimetres, ie, the plant is 150 cm to 175 cm above ground level.

Further abbreviations used are:

FTD = Feathered. The plant has branches from of near to ground level all the way up the stem.

MLT = Multi stemmed. This is a tree that has two of more trunks from ground level.

Std = Standard. This tree has a clear unbranched trunk up to a height of approximetly 175 cm.

Bsh = Bush. Bushy in shape.
