'1359', which can be found along the Vuchterstraat
in Putbroek (municipality of Echt-Susteren)
The girth of the tree is 2.79 m measured at a height of 1.30 m (May 26, 2013, sjir
). Its height is exactly 21.00 m (May 26, 2013, laser with Sine method (e.g. Nikon Forestry 550 laser rangefinder)
). This tree was planted in 1980, which makes it exactly 33 years old (sjir
, Feb 28, 2013).
The girth was measured more than once:
|Year||Girth@1.3 m||Measurement||Growth rate|
|2008||2.23 m||Steven Jansen||-|
|2013||2.79 m||sjir||11 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.
