(diameter breast height)•The diameter of a tree measured at about 4.5 feet above the ground. This measurement, correlated to the height of the tree, gives an indication of the board foot volume of lumber in a tree.

Diameter at breast height; the average diameter (outside the bark) of a tree 4.5 feet above mean ground level.

Diameter Breast Height. The diameter of a tree at 4.5 feet above ground level on the high side of the tree.

Diameter at breast height. The diameter of a tree measured at a standard reference point, usually 1.3 m above ground level on the uphill side of the tree after accumulated ground litter has been removed. For trees with large buttresses, a point above the main flare of the buttresses is often used to measure diameter; its abbreviation is Dab.

(diameter at breast height) The diameter of a tree 4 and 1/2 feet above the ground on the uphill side of the tree.

"Diameter at breast height" of a tree measured 1.3 meters above the ground.

Diameter of the tree at breast height.

A measurement of tree size indicating the diameter at breast height.

diameter breast height; diameter of a tree trunk in inches 4.5 ft above ground

The method used to measure tree caliper in the timber industry, which qauges diamter at a point 4 ½ feet above the ground line. For land development purposes, survey and preservation tree measurements are made according to DBH.

the diameter of a tree at roughly breast height or 4 1/2 feet from the ground

Diameter at breast height (1.4 m or 4.5 ft above ground level).

diameter at breast height; a measure of tree diameter at 4.5 feet above the ground or root collar.

Diameter of a tree trunk at breast height (1.37 m)

the stem diameter of a tree measured at breast height, 1.3 metres above the ground.

An acronym of “Diameter Breast Height”. A term used to describe a tree diameter measurement taken at the standard height of 1.4m above ground level. Usually measured and expressed overbark on the standing tree.

diameter at breast height, or 4.5 feet above ground level. The abbreviation generally is written without capital letters and without periods.

Diameter of a standing tree at breast height (measured at 4.5 feet above the ground on the uphill side of the tree).

Diameter at breast height. Diameter of the trunk measured at 4.5 feet [1.4 m, 55 inches] above the ground; the same as DSH, diameter at standard height.

The diameter of a tree at breast height (4.5 feet above ground) together with the estimated height of the usable logs in a tree is used to determine the volume of lumber likely to be yielded in a log depending on the log scale used (Scribner, Doyle or International Rule).

Diameter breast high. The diameter of a tree 4.5 feet above ground level, the standard point for measuring merchantable timber products. Also see “Merchantable timber.

tree measurement; diameter at breast height (4.5 feet above ground)

See diameter at breast height.

Diameter at breast height. Tree diameter measured at 4.5 ft from the ground.

diameter over bark at breast height (1.3 m)

The standard measure of a single stemmed tree at 4 1/2 feet above grade. When a tree has grown with one or more than one stem at 4 1/2 feet above grade, DBH shall be equal to the sum of the diameters of the individual stems measured at 4 1/2 feet above grade
