The DBH, the Diameter Breast Height, is the measurement of the diameter of the tree trunk taken at 1.4 metres or 4.5 feet from the ground. That is the standard used by all cities in the Greater Toronto Area.

If your tree is smaller than the specified DBH, you might be exempt from obtaining a permit to remove a tree. Other reasons of exemptions are: hazardous tree, dead tree, diseased tree and all Ash Trees with the Emerald Ash Borer.
