This tree has a lean but appears healthy. Because of the significant lean, the cbh was taken at 6 inches below division of leaders. ( At 4.5 feet there is a bulge, which would inflate measurement.) Multi stem form is common in this species, and the 6” measurement accommodates for where the trunk is straight.
