2019 Update: The trunk circumference was calculated by using a composite circumference of the four co-dominant leaders measured at 4.5' above ground. This tree is situated in a mulch bed near the Virginia Beach Municipal Center. There are small apartments which have been built since the tree was last measured in 2009, but the tree is still thriving and on un-restricted, municipal land along a trail. The municipality has also installed a lightning protection system which will help the tree thrive.
