Only a little more for my woodlore ones because there's just more wood altogether. They do look cool, but I took them out of the Vibergs I had them in and put them in a thinner leather cheap boot that had a collapsing shaft. They also never sit symmetrically in whatever pair they're in which kinda bugs me, but thats likely me being ocd.
Completely understandable. My latest pickup (the 3sixteen scouts) have such a low (?) vamp that I can’t fit the shoe tree passed where the eyelets end. Don’t know what to do about that.

I've started using Allen Edmonds trees in all my 2030 boots. They're longer and flatter than the other brands I've tried and they fit great.

Weirdly enough my favorite shoe trees are from Jos A Bank actually. They seem to fill out whatever I put them into really well compared to the woodlore ones.

I also have Allen Edmonds shoe trees and actually prefer them over my other trees. They’re sturdier and less flimsy from what I’ve noticed.

could also be like the useless RW ones - gives a little help to the upper, but does absolutely nothing for the vamp

The ones in the picture are Viberg branded.

Woodlore makes all of AE's trees and often has great BOGO deals from time to time, plus you can avoid having AE trees in other brands of boots if that bothers you.
Woodlore also makes trees for Nordstrom, right?
The mix matching branding in shoe trees & footwear don’t bother me.

You could never have too many shoe trees.
Agreed. I've been steadily picking them up from e-Bay over the years. If you're patient you occasionally find them for ridiculously good prices and I could truly care less about brand. A quick gentle sanding restores even old ones very nicely.

Lol my dad has noticed a few of his missing since he retired.
