RedRob reports, took extra meticulous care with this tree as it visibly looked the tallest on his visit last year. A consistant 60.6-61 metres taken from three baselines, two in the lower pinetum, one on the path leaving the pinetum towards the house. Through the laser viewfinder, the tree had a narrow leading shoot which was fairly difficult to get a hit on and lead to many no readings. On pushes to hit the apex shoot 61 metres readings were recorded but RedRob cannot be absolutely sure that that was the terminal apex point reading.
