Comments: The tree is healthy, though there is one small area of damage. Circumference was measured at 4.5 ft on each of the two stems. Stem 1: 27", Stem 2: 42". Composite trunk circumference calculated.

At the time of measurement, the College Landscaping crew was trimming trees in the garden and we learned the tree was to be taken down due to its proximity to the Sorority House. After talking with the Assistant Manager of Landscaping who summoned the College Deputy Arborist, they agreed to maintain the tree.
