    Holy CRAP! That thing is like a TREE! I am sure that is very nice when it is blooming.

    I have not a clue.I'm hoping someone here may be able to guess. I would say at least 15 years ?

    That is a beautiful crepe - its unusual to find one that apparently never has been chopped . Has a really nice look , even without foliage . I would guess 15 - 20 years old.

    posts some pics in the fall in bloom. I have never seen a crepe that large. most last 5 years and get cut. pity. I can't even get my little 2 year old crepe to grow. it has been hacked so many times due to kids breaking branches, makes me sick.
