How do you tell what size tree your english saddle is?

On all my saddles, the size is marked somewhere on the saddle itself. Like on the stirrup bar or under a flap somewhere.

Measured from tree point to tree point, on a bare tree. I think that's what someone on here said in some earlier discussions. I'll go look for posts that said that. (eta: Can't find. Read post #7?, mine, here: English Saddle Brands)
On HDR, 2.5 fit is the medium, and 3.5 fit is wide.
Crosby marks M or W on stirrup bars. (eta: On the near side stirrup bar only, to be exact. And there are a very few XW Crosbys out there.)
Collegiate, the old RD ones, ART plus a number is regular tree. Wide is just a number or sometimes a W after the number.
A or 28 narrow
B or 29 medium-narrow
C or 30 M
D or 31 MW (31.5 is also MW but only old Stubbens have 1/2 size trees)
E or 32 "wide"
There's an XW that's about 34 cm.
31cm - 32 cm are the most widely sold sized in the USA. But those are pretty equivalent to a Crosby M.

old thread had this:
Where do I find the tree size on an old Stubben?
If the padding is in good shape, you can measure straight across where the tree points are sitting in the pockets (below the stirrup bar), and get a rough estimate on the tree size. If you measure underneath, between the padding at the points of the tree, you add 4 cm to get the approximate tree size. So, if it measures 27 cm, then the tree is about 30.5-31.5 cm.
