More Tree Huggers

Robert Bloomfield (1766-1823), Remains, Vol. II (London: Baldwin, Cradock, and Joy, 1824), p. 81:
The great Oak in Euston Park.—Myself, my wife, and my daughter Hannah, (then nine years and a half old), embraced his rough rind at arm's-length, touching our fingers; and could thus encompass it all but about half a yard. By observation afterwards, I found the girth of this tree to be fifteen feet, in May, 1801.
