Directions: This site is not readily accessible to the public. The tree is growing in a swampy area along a power-line right-of-way on Fort A.P. Hill. Precise GPS coordinates are on file. Approximate GPS listed here. Turn into the North Gate and take your second right. Go to the end of that road (no name) and turn left down the gravel road that runs alongside the motor pool. Turn left and walk down the power-line until you hit the swampy area. Start looking for the tree on your left. Access to this area is restricted. Visitation is generally prohibited and re-measure will need to be coordinated through Jason Applegate, or Fort A.P. Hill Forestry.
