Comments: A multi-trunk tree with indications of some rot on the inside where the four large limbs of the trunk separate.
2019 Update: Tree still appears fairly healthy, despite decay between the four major stems. Height was a few feet shorter because a more precise laser hypsometer was used in 2019. Trunk circumference was measured at 2.5 feet above ground due to the splitting of four large leaders.
