reduce product waste and to give you an accurate price for insect treatment for
your tree, we require that you measure the diameter breast height (DBH) of the
tree prior to our arrival. The easiest method to measure the tree DBH is by
taking a ruler or a measuring tape and measure at chest level the diameter
(width) of the tree.
more time consuming, but slightly more accurate method is to measure the
circumference of the tree by measuring around the tree at chest level and
divide by 3.14. This will give you the diameter.
i.e. Diameter Breast Height Calculation example: The tree has a 17” circumference take 17 / 3.14 =5.41” DBH. We always round up and this tree would be a 6” DBH tree.
calculate a multi-stem tree, measure each trunk of the tree and add
Example: For a multi-stem tree with 3 trunks. Trunk 1 is 10".
Trunk 2 is 7". and Trunk 3 is 8". Add together into one tree of 10 +
7 + 8 is 25” tree.
The Organo-Lawn tree care specialist measures the Diameter Breast Height of a tree in Fort Collins before he applies an application of Criterion.
We need the Diameter Breast Height measurements for the following tree care services: Criterion, Orthene, Safari, Tree IV for Chlorosis and Tree-age.
