Category B Image
A very fine Oak but the girth, best measured at about 1m is clearly exaggerated by a large low limb.

Category B Image
This Cedar has a very obvious low branch arising close to the ground and apparently fusing with the main trunk.
This tree was best measured just above ground level at its narrowest girth.

Category B Image
Beautifully burred and with a large low branch this Oak has an exaggerated girth, whether measure above the branch (on the right) or below it closer to the ground.

Category B Image
This wonderful ancient Ash has too many burrs and bumps to record a meaningful girth at 1.5m.
The smallest girth was recorded at about 0.5m.
