    Comments: BT-3673 Tree is not accessible to the general public. It is located on the east side of Turtle Trail just north of Route 197 on the Central Tract of the Patuxent Research Refuge. Circumference was measured at mid-slope at 4.5' above the ground. Tree has English Ivy running halfway up its bole. We cut the ivy to get an accurate girth measurement. Many branches on the north side of the tree have been pruned due to nearby power line. No health issues noted.
