What is the difference between נמוכה and קצרה?

Short in length/time = קצר (opposite - ארוך)

Short in height = נמוך (opposite - גבוה)

Examples:

The tree is short = העץ נמוך

It's a long way home = זאת דרך ארוכה הביתה

Someone on another thread said that "נמוך" is "short" in height and that "קצר" is "short" in length or time.
