What do you mean by "length of my tree is 3 bytes" ?

If you mean some like "keys in the trie have maximum 3-bytes" then I've
never thought of such a specialization. I think that such an optimization
would be good only for a very small number of use-cases.

Also, can you describe the requirements for your data structure ? Maybe
there are other data structures that would suite your needs better,
especially if the range of the keys it's bounded.
