Palm Tree Measurements
Tools and Units.
To measure a palm tree, which ultimately determines the palm tree's price, Desert Empire Palms, along with many other palm tree nurseries, uses a crain surveyers rod. This rod is essentially a long pole with units of theenglish measurement system, feet and inches. Each measurment starts from the base of the tree, and ends where the last of the visible brown trunk ends. (The crown of the palm tree is not included in the measurement.) The number of feet indicated on the rod determines the size of the tree. For every order placed with our company, an employee walks the field to find trees that fit that exact order.
