Comments: The tree has been pruned many times to remove dead wood, but there is still dead wood in the crown and some noticable stem inclusions. A majority of the growth on the crown looks healthy. Trunk circumference measured at 3" above ground due to multi-stem form, which is typical of the species. The trunk was completely fused where measurement was taken.
