Many of our customers ask us why do I want to buy a larger tree vs. a smaller one. We recommend the larger tree for customers who want the instant impact to their outdoor space and smaller trees if they are willing to be patient. The bigger and fuller tree will get you the desired look sooner and faster. Another reason for buying the larger caliber tree is that if the tree is going to be a prominent piece for your outdoor space, it will allow the rest of space to be planted sooner. Smaller trees may delay the planting of the space because it is difficult to visualize what the tree will look like in a few years. For the customer who is willing to wait for the tree to grow out over a few years, go with the smaller tree.
