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.

 

 

American Standard for Nursery Stock Box Size to Container Size Equivalents

 

1.1.3.7 Box size equivalents

 

For purposes of the Table 1, box size “equivalent” indicates that a box size may be specified in lieu of the indicated equivalent container class, and nursery stock in an equivalent box size shall be accepted in the trade as in conformance with a specification for container grown nursery stock in the equivalent container class indicated, and vice-versa. Boxes are not required to have volumes that are “equal to” or within the volume range of the indicated equivalent container class, or vice-versa.
