Branches may not always seem opposing if one has died or fallen off, so use caution. Look for compound leaves with 1 leaf and 7 leaflets and for the distinctive bark which has deep and jagged grooves.

- Send us an email with your name, address and phone number, the location (front, NE, back, SW, etc.) and photo of each tree (if desired) and the DBH of each tree.
Measure Your Trees
At 4-1/2 feet above the ground, wrap a measuring tape around the trunk of the tree. Divide the measurement by 3.14 to get the diameter, also known as DBH (diameter at breast height).
Determining DBH for Trees with Multiple Stems
If you have a tree with multiple stems, measure the diameter of each stem.
- 2 stem tree – add the two stems DBH and then divide by 2
- 3 Stem tree – add the three stems DBH and divide by 2.60
- 4 Stem tree – add the four stems DBH and divide by 3.40
