Comments: The tree is in poor condition. The crown is very thin and most of the trunk is completely hollow. It is highly likely that it will fall apart before itss next measurement. Malus halliana is a very rare species that likely originated in China. Probably was brought to the east coast by the Dooley's In the early 1900’s. ID was confirmed by Peggy Singlemann, horticultural manager at Maymont. Due to the typical trunk configuration of this species, the trunk circumference was measured 2.5 feet above the ground.
