Abstract: We seek a universal upper bound for the first diameter of $ 3$-manifolds of scalar curvature $ \geq + 1$. We find it in the case of finite fundamental group by using a combinatorial theorem about finite trees, and in the case when $ {\pi _1}$ is infinite cyclic by using a weak notion of a $ {\pi _1}$-equivariant Busemann function.
