Well, very probably it was measured with a clinometer or hypsometer with tangent method. Before I had a laser I made mistakes / overmeasurements with that method even after I was warned by ENTS. To measure this oak I tried for 20 minutes to find the tallest tops, not easy in a closed forest canopy in summer. Perhaps in winter an even taller top can be found. That Sessile oaks can grow to 48 m can be seen in the Forêt de Bercé.

Your measures girth: 3.12 m, height: 43.40 m . . . . nasty case of over-estimation on the height on the signboard!!
