How to Measure the Crown Spread

How to Measure the Crown Spread

Start with your back to the trunk of the tree and measure to the point directly below the end of the furthest limb. All four measurements (A,B,C,D) are made the same way. Measure “A” & “B” and find the average. Measure “C” and “D” and find the average. Your final answer will be the average of the two averages already calculated.
