January 2000 – Tim Hills: A solid looking tree at first glance, but there is more to this tree than meets the eye. One of the limbs or stems seen in the plan from 2000 has rotted and its remaining shell in 2011 is full of needle drop. There is also evidence of an internal stem. Girth 17′ 10” (544cm) at the ground, 17′ 8” (538cm) at 3′ and 19′ 2” (584cm) at 5′.
March 2008 – Dave Kenny: 5.44m@ 0.2m. There is some standing deadwood under the canopy where one of the limbs snapped off many years ago, but the tree looks to be generally in very good condition. 2015 – Tim Hills: Girth recorded as follows: 18′ 4” (559cm) at 3′; 19′ 11” (607cm) at 5′.
