Plants with listed heights (i.e. 4-5 ft) are measured from the top of the root ball to the top of the plant. Basically, what will be exposed out of the ground after planting. We do not count the root ball or container in the tree size.
Many of our plants come in the plastic Nursery Containers in which they are grown. These containers come in various sizes. Typically, the larger the container, the more mature and larger the plant is. The containers are measured by the "Gallon". More often than not, the larger the gallon size, the larger the plant.
