Within NPS Container grown trees are defined by ‘C’ followed by a number indicating the volume in litre, e.g. C5. The volume of cell-grown plants is indicated in cubic centimetres (cc). Typical container sizes for trees are as follows:
|Type||Volume||Typical Overall height (cm) (species-dependent)|
|C||1 – 2 L||40-50|
All forms of trees are available in containers from 7.5 litre to 85 litre (shown) and larger. The range of species reduces with the increasing size of trees. Larger trees are available or, if time is available, large trees can be grown by contract to a specific size for a particular species. No standards are available for these trees and personal selection is strongly encouraged.
