Dominion 2L - Please explain measure of diameter of tree. Bayer Advance which is similar states differently/...
What is the proper way to measure the tree diameter? Bayer Advance, which is similar but much more expensive recomends measuring the circumference, not the diameter. So for bayer, you would measure around the tree. What is the recommended method for measuring for Domion 2L
Each product is formulated differently and the actual application rates are different so the instructions on each product are specific for that specific product. Here are the measuring instructions that should be followed for Dominion 2L:
How to find the DBH or Diameter at Breast Height of a tree
1. To find the diameter of the tree, measure the circumference of the tree four feet from the ground. Use your tape measure to get accurate measurements from the ground to the four-foot mark and around the tree.
The circumference of my tree is _____________________
2. Calculate the diameter of your tree:
_________________ ÷ pi (3.14) = _____________________
circumference diameter (include units)
Note: For multi-stem trees, such as crape myrtle or birches, the rate should be determined on cumulative stem diameter for all stems in the clump.
