The appearance of tree 4 improved dramatically between 2002 and 2014. It was so obscured by ivy in 2002 that it was impossible to see the tree. In 2014 its fine trunk and other detail could be observed.
In 2002 girth was 15′ 2” (462cm) close to the ground, but above spreading roots. This had increased to 15′ 5” (470cm) in 2014.
In 1984 Reg Wheeler recorded a girth of 453cm at 30cm (14′ 10” at 1′).
