How To Calculate Tree Height
From the bottom of your tree, measure 5 feet up and mark the tree with colored tape so it is visible. With a measuring tape in hand, step away from the tree until the line on the tree is equal to the 1” mark on your tape.

While keeping your hands in front of you so that 1”=5 feet, raise the tape until it visually reaches the top of your tree. Take note of how many inches you raised the tape and multiply that number by 5. This final number will provide you with the tree height.
