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 around 25.00 m (2009, measurement method unknown, Nardo Kaandorp). This tree was planted around the year 1600 ± 20, which makes it around 415 ± 20 years old (Leo Goudzwaard, Jan 5, 2015).
