# Basal Area from Diameter in Centimetres

Calculate the basal area of a tree in square metres from a diameter in centimetres measured at breast height.

To calculate for one tree:Basal area in square metres = pi * (DBHcm)² / 40000

**DBH (diameter measured @ breast height), refers to the tree diameter measured at 1.3 metres above the ground.**

#### example:

diameter measured @ breast height = 34 centimetres 34 * 34 = 1156 * 3.14159 = 3631.67804 ÷ 40000 = 0.090791951 m²
