Premier Trees Ltd. follows the Canadian Standards for Nursery Stock in measuring and grading the trees we sell.
Coniferous or Colorado Blue Spruce are measured and sold by height. We sell spruce trees starting at seven feet.
Deciduous trees are sold by caliper size, which is a measurement of the diameter of the trunk taken four inches above the ground. Trees are sold once they reach a minimum of 50 mm caliper.
Deciduous trees are pruned to shape following the recommended guidelines promoting a healthy tree.
Trees are dug using a tree spade attached to a skid steer. We use wire baskets with burlap liners to secure the root-ball.
Coniferous trees are shipped with their branches wrapped to minimize damage in shipping.
