Eppstein  characterized the minor-closed graph families for which the
treewidth is bounded by a function of the diameter, which includes, e.g.,
planar graphs. This characterization has been used as the basis for several
(approximation) algorithms on such graphs (e.g., [2, 5-8]). The
proof of Eppstein is complicated. In this short paper we obtain the same
characterization with a simple proof. In addition, the relation between
treewidth and diameter is slightly better and explicit.
