Values listed are based on the average weight of trees grown in AZT’s mulch/soil growth medium per box size and are offered here as an estimate of the weight of trees by box size. They are intended to help shippers and contractors in determining the type(s) of equipment needed to transport and off load trees. The physical size of the tree (height, width and caliper and corresponding root mass) will affect the total weight with larger specimens being heavier container size.
