Comments: Largest holly in a row of old-aged Chinese hollies. The tree has some decay in the base and lower limbs, but appears healthy otherwise. It is not known currently how old the tree is. Split trunk form is common in Chinese holly, so measured trunk base at 1.0 ft above ground at smallest girth. All leaders fuse into one trunk about 2 feet above ground.
