Comments: Declared national champion in 2020. The tree is quite healthy, but appears very old. The date of planting is unknown. The tree was fruiting when measured. Listed circumference measurement is for largest stem at 4.5' above ground level. A basal measurement of the clumped stems at 6" above ground level yields a measurement of 55". That would put the score at 79 points.
