August 2000 – Tim Hills: A fine spread of branches but with thin foliage. One major opening in its bole of 6′ high and 2′ 6” wide reveals a massive internal stem/root of 8′ girth. There are 3 further places around the bole covered with only a thin skin of dead wood. When these decay it will be possible to walk through the centre of the tree.
