I'm with Bigtrucker 2", I won't argue over one 3" tree here and there, but the real world definition for me is, If it takes a saw to remove, it is a tree. if I can remove it with shears, it's a sapling. Arboriculture definition is different, we remove them we don't cultivate them.

Additionally, if there is a field of them and you have to use a sickle bar or brush hog on them, that's a bid. As per Wells Fargo, I consider that a "distinctly wooded area", and not the maintainable portion of the lawn, as stated in the work order.

12-14" is what WFHM said to us once. If I couldn't mow it then it's a tree

The definition of saplings is a moving target with no clear definition. This is a Wells Fargo ploy to get more work done at the expense of its Nationals' vendors without paying for it. If you receive WF "manicured lawn" orders from your National run the other way!

If I can easily pull it out by hand its a sapling. Of course that definition could change with the scope of work/work order .
