Trees growing with a clearly defined single clean stem measured at 1.5m.

Measure at 1.5m vertically above ground rather than by placing the tape up the sloping trunk.

Woodland trees usually conform to this category.
This “pedestal” or “pot” Larch creates an interesting feature but can be measured normally at 1.5m
