Comments: Tree is hollow, but looks very healthy and is full of new fruit growth. Very protected from wind. This tree is the largest of four that are randomly growing in the woods. Property used to be a cattle pasture a little over 100 years ago, but grew up into a forest. The tree is dwarfed by a large 100+ foot willow oak and red oaks. Charles Gardner noted the tree was a nice surprise to find.
