March 1999 – Tim Hills: Two fragment trees. Evidence that this was an even larger tree still exists, though the piece of stump included in the 25′ approximate girth will decay and lead inevitably to lower girth in the future. Girths recorded excluding the stump were 23′ 1″ (704cm) at 1′ and 22′ 9″ (693cm) at between 2′ and 3′ (just beneath the bulge).
April 2015 – Peter Norton: A fragmenting female close to the southwest porch. Its southeast side has been lost and evidence of decay is still occurring. Foliage was quite thin and ivy starting to take hold. A girth of 22′ 4” (681cm) was recorded at a natural waistline.
