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)
