Comments: The tree is old, but it is still generally healthy. Some decay is evident on one of the two stems, but it doesn’t seem to be impacting the tree's growth. The tree looks to have been heavily pruned. In response, it has sent out root suckers and has started to regain some of its crown spread. The circumference was measured under the trunk fork at 2.5 feet above ground. Individual stem measurements, measured at 4.5 ft above ground are 60” and 64”; composite circumference is 87”.
