Tree age calculator

Answers the question: How old is the tree? How to calculate the age of a tree?

Finding the age of old trees can be pretty challenging if you cannot cut them down and count their annual rings. Using this tree age calculator, you can estimate the tree's age based on the diameter at approximately breast height (1.3 meters above ground). If the trunk splits into several trunks below this height (1.3 m), the circumference is measured further down where it is narrowest.

If you select an option that has the same underlying value as another option, both (all) will be marked.

Please note that the age of the tree in this calculator is only an estimate.
