Sizing Details

What is caliper? This refers to the diameter of the tree trunk, commonly referenced in landscape plans or municipal requirements. However, it's not very descriptive to the average joe, right? We think of caliper as roughly the following size:

2" (12-14' tall minimum)

2.5" (14-16' minimum, thicker, fuller branching)

3" (16-18' minimum, even bigger canopy than the others)

3.5"+ (18' and over, with a fuller tree canopy as the size increases)

Select an option here and our team will bring enough pine straw or hardwood mulch to fully top dress the planting location, giving the installation a fresh, finished look.

Our Take

This majestic shade tree is one our favorites for creating just the right amount of reprieve from the summer sun while still allowing grass to grow beneath. Because of the small, serrated leaf that the Chinese Elm possesses, shade is more dappled, creating a filtered sun location. While walking around downtown Greenville, be sure to see the 'Allee' Elms that are planted along Main in the West End!
