Tree 2 measured 13′ 7” (414cm) just above the ground in 2002, a figure that included several thick ivy stems plastered against the trunk.
In 2014 a girth of 13′ 8” (417cm) was recorded at the same height, but this time only over one ivy stem. One large limb close to the ground has been removed and others that once pointed towards the church have almost had their cuts hidden behind new growth. From a bole of about 5′ are two major and one minor growth areas.
In 1984 Reg Wheeler recorded a girth of 412cm at the ground (13′ 6”).
