November 2002 – Tim Hills: Though of small girth an elongated bole makes it appear larger. It consists of two separated fragments around a large section of the original trunk which has been cut off at about 10′.
2015: The original trunk is an almost complete dead sapwood shell. Inside it is very loose crumbly wood and cubical rot. This will be interesting to see in 150 years. Measured at 2′ (though hard to keep it exactly at this height as the bole is twisted) was 13′ 7” (414cm), an increase of 5” since 2002.
