A “tree” as described here is defined as a perennial woody stemmed  plant, having a single main stem (trunk), that is 13 feet  tall or more at maturity & having a distinct crown.

The term “shrub” denotes a woody stemmed  plant usually having multiple stems (trunks) that never or rarely exceed 13  feet in height.
