Comments: We measured the trunk circumference at 3 feet above ground, which presented the smallest circumference to avoid the influence of an old branch collar. We are aware of the presence of numerous burls and other formations of callus growth; however, we do not feel that this extra tissue has contributed to an excessive trunk circumference.
