He said the base was somewhat swollen, but even so: 360cm diameter is pretty huge.

I contacted Dinets and asked about the "78-metre Nordmann fir". He answered the entire area was logged in preparation for the Sochi Olympics. A friend of him was there recently and found only clearcuts.

Too bad! The same nature destruction goes further in Korea. For the 2018 Olympics, an old-growth forest was destructed.
