Source of earliest mention: 1933: Les vieux arbres de la Normandie - Henri Gadeau de Kerville


This ancient tree was photographed by Gadeau in 1933. Measured at its most swollen point its girth reached 36′. At a height of about 5′ the tree narrows to 22′ 2”, and this still considerable girth is retained to a great height, presenting a formidable spectacle. While it appears to be solid, a hole on the east side shows that it is hollow, though the extent of the hollowing could not be established. It carried healthy foliage.
