Comments: The tree appears to be in very good shape. Within past several years several large lower limbs have broken off but these do not appear to have been detrimental to the tree. The site where the tree is situated is protected because of the adjacent creek. No development is planned that will affect the tree. Dethroned as national champ in 2017.
