The measurement for a tree is determined by the diameter. If you would like to determine the measurement of your tree take an inch tape measure and measure approximately 4-foot up from the base of the tree and around the tree. This will be your circumference. You can then go to the following website.
Insert the unit number in the Circumference box and move the pointer to the Solve Others box and hit Enter. The calculator will provide the Diameter. Below is the pricing schedule for the treatment.
