2005?11.70 mJeroen Philippona-
201512.37 m?Rainer Lippert0.6 cm/year

The growth rate shown in the table shows the yearly average increase in girth since the last measurement. This value only gives an indication of the growth rate, since every measurement could be done at slightly different heights and during different periods of the year. As this tree is a tree with multiple trunks, the girth can be larger than what would be expected of the tree of this age.
