LOAD ESTIMATIONS
FOR BALL & BURLAP TREES AND SHRUBS

We hope these charts assist you with putting together your load. These charts are based on using a 48 foot flatbed trailer with sideboards. However, due to the difference in size, weight, and overall shape of the plant material to be loaded, these estimates could vary. We will do our best to accommodate your request and work with your orders from the initial acknowledgement through delivery to your door. Please feel free to contact us with any questions regarding these charts and tables.
