Notes: South of the church. An outpouring of branches close to the ground. Some lay across each other and appear fused together. Others spread along the ground; at a distance of up to 10' from the bole some have taken root, others have become partly buried and emerge several feet further on in a new burst of growth. We considered the tree to be female, but it has also been reported as male.
