Term Definition

"Diameter at breast height" - the diameter of a tree measured 4.5 feet off the ground.

Diameter Limit

An unsustainable type of harvest that removes trees above a certain diameter. It provides short-term income, but degrades the woods and often makes future harvests impossible or at least of much lower economic value. Avoid these types of harvests.
