Comments: The tree appears to be in fair to good health.One lower branch should probably be removed as , upon inspection it held rot. Tree circumference was measured at three feet due to low lying branches. These individual branches would not be considered as part of the tree's bole as they lay off to the side.This form is quite common, for this type of tree and not unusual.
