Date Last Measured: 2017

Last Measured by: Jon and Yvonne Rockett

Date First Measured: 2007

Comments: Appears to be very healthy. Growing on the first terrace along river and lies about 150' SW of the picnic shelter. 2017: The tree has had the central stem removed (reducing the total height since last measured) and cables have been added to support the surrounding stems. When viewed from the South there appears to be a narrowing of the trunk at 3.8 feet, measured from the West side. However, the circumference here is larger than DBH because of excessive butt swell on the North side of the tree.
