Ornamental Tree Height Guide

Buy Trees Online Height Guide Information

Introduction

What height does the tree you want to buy online grow to?  This is one of the most commonly asked questions that www.trees-online.co.uk is asked.  To answer this question we have produced this tree height guide to help you choose the correct height.  The heights of the trees we are giving are the suggested height after 10 years.  Please note that this is only a guide and the situation the tree is planted in will impact on the height, meaning the tree will be smaller or taller. 

As a general guide, expect the heights of trees in this guide to increase by 50 % of their height after 20 years.  Also please note that the range of trees shown is dependent on stock availability at time of ordering.

How this tree height guide works is that we have created four sections.  The first section is very small trees, the next section is small trees, followed by medium trees and finally large trees.  You will find we have grouped the trees in alphabetical order, using their Latin names, with common names where appropriate in brackets.  You will also note that some species fall into more than one height category.  Finally, please note that this guide covers a range of trees far wider than www.trees-online.co.uk currently has available.  Please check our website for details of availability.  We will welcome enquiries for varieties not currently available as there is the possibility of future supply.
