    I drive past this monster frequently admiring the shape, quality, color, and of course the size. Use the car in the background for scale. It's about 12' x 10' wide.

    That is a monster! Too bad it's so close to the tree.

    That tree is the only thing keeping Rick's shovel in the truck;)

    It would probably be much larger if not for the root competition with the tree.

    It doesn't seem to mind the tree. In fact, there seems to be a nice "agreement" between the two plants.
