1) The RPA for multistemmed trees is based on the area of a circle with a radius 10 times the diameter of the tree at ground level. In trees diameter is usually measured using a diameter tape, which effectively measures the circumfrence and divides by pi.

2) This question is getting too site specific. There may be many other things on site that affect the shape of RPAs. You really need to get a competent arboriculturist in to assess the site and advise you.
