Comments: The tree has serious trunk and lower leader damage (as noted in the 2010 measurements). The owner informed me that the tree has lost several limbs over the years (resulting in crownspan decrease). Despite this, the canopy remains green and the tree has grown since last measured. It is however at high risk of stem breakage during wind events due to the trunk damage. Trunk forks into 3 leaders below 4.5' above ground, which is common in the species. Trunk measured at smallest girth, which was at 3' above ground.
