Grade Particulars:

  • Premium Grade: Dense and/or typically uniform on no less than 3 sides, with minor imperfections.
  • No. 1 Grade: Medium density, uniform on 3 sides, with minor imperfections, stem partially visible.
  • Standard Grade: Lighter in density and color, nice on two sides with visible gaps and imperfections with the stem is sometimes visible.
  • Natural Grade: Open tree with space between branches, nice tree has a completely natural look with visible stem.

Size of Trees

  • Canadian Standards: Measured by height and sized from the ground to a midway point between the tip of the leader and the uppermost whorl (group of branches).
  • USA Standards: Measures the entire length of the tree, from the butt to the tip of the leader (top most branch).
  • Considerations: Most trees we provide are produced either in our plantations or in other bitterly cold regions of Canada. A small portion originates in the USA, such as some Pine and Fir. This variance in standards may result in marginal differences in actual tree height.
