Surreylad:

Yes, it looks very good, considering it's so close to the beach. This tree typically doesn't like salty air. It grows much better at least a few miles from the coast.

omg- good thing I bookmarked some photos for a second look. That's enormous. Did you ever see the trunk? Smooth or fluted?
btw,Andy..I could have "liked" thousands of your pics. But,always a rush to see "the next one".

It's really not so tall...only 30'. I've seen many much larger and taller. I see several F. lyrata along the freeways on my way to work.

This tree has a single trunk. I can't remember the specifics...even though I've seen it many times.
