Date Last Measured: 2019

Last Measured by: Ben Blankenship and Stuart Blankenship

Date First Measured: 2012

Comments: Tree is old and stressed, but is producing a healthy amount of foliage. New height was slightly shorter, most likely because a laser hyposometer was used in 2019. Ivy has been removed from trunk. Tree splits into many limbs at 4.5 ft (standard measuring height) so circumference was measured at narrowest point between standard height and ground level.
