The article discusses the possibility of using direct and spectral approximation methods to determine the thickness of tree-like objects. Several mathematical models of the profile of extended objects are studied. The accuracy of estimating thickness parameters of synthesized and real objects is also analyzed.

Approximation method, extended object, mathematical model, synthesized and real object.
