Comments: The tree has multiple, large stems emanating from the trunk flare. One of the leaders appears to have been struck by lightning, and a couple have been broken off or cut. The challenge in measuring the trunk of this tree was differentiating leaders from deliquescent branches. Ultimately 5 large leaders were selected for measurement at 4.5' above ground level: 101", 106", 118", 126", 162". Composite circumference was calculated using them.
