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. Its height is exactly 23.60 m (2010, laser with Sine method (e.g. Nikon Forestry 550 laser rangefinder), Leo Goudzwaard). This tree was planted in 1919, which makes it exactly 96 years old (Steven Jansen, Oct 1, 2011).
