April 1999 – Tim Hills: SE of the church. Its striking red bole is almost completely covered in living wood. It has an unusually large number of thick branches. Girth at the ground increased from 31′ 2” (950cm) in 1999 to 31′ 7½” (964cm) in 2013. I also recorded 30′ 2” (919.5cm) at 3′ outside of the limb seen on the right in the 1st photo, and 28′ 5” (866cm) excluding the limb, adjusting the tape height slightly.
