The measurement was only a rough one, but I swear it looked at least 2 feet wider. Too bad you can't see the canopy in this picture, because there were some monstrously thick limbs snaking out on either side of the trunk, and a broken top up even higher above. Based on my calculations (96 inches x 144 x ZY x 3.14 + a jillion) this tree was born at the dawn of time. UTM coordinates for the tree are ~ 431360, 4844450. If you hike in to find it, and any other of its huge brothers and sisters, you get a gold star.
