That figure of average 2.5cm girth per year looks as if it came from Alan Mitchell's books.  He had a colossal database of trees, although it was all in his head. Inevitably it is approximate, but is quick and simple to use for a preliminary review.

I can send you the extracts direct Paul, they're too large to post on here.
