Comments: This tree was origianlly nominated in 1987. In 2008 there appeared to be three tree/bushes here at one time, one of which is now gone. The one we measured had many branches that had been cut back. Circumference measured at 6 inches above ground. 2018: The tree is healthy and is being trimmed and has two large trunks and one smaller one at ground level. Measured at 3". the previous circumference is no longer valid because of multiple trunks at ground level. The largest trunk measured 70' at near ground level, the next largest 62", and the smallest 32".

Current all-time species champion.
