    4000 bricks?
    When trees are dying they don't produce leaves, the branches get brittle, it stops growing, and the story said part of it is already filled with cement. It takes more than bark for a tree to survive.

    Besides, if Andrew Jackson had it planted wouldn't it be a racist tree?
    Or is Old Hickory considered okay?
    Hey, maybe his nickname should have been Old Magnolia.

    I get the feeling you're doing a bit of tongue-in-cheek posting with this thread.

    A PARTY THAT DOESN'T DISCOURAGE VIOLENCE SURELY WILL SEE CHARACTER ASSASSINATION AS AN ACCEPTABLE ALTERNATIVE

    Eh, it's just a tree. it isn't really something to get up in arms about.
    The GOP loves standards. They love standards so much, they got two of them.

    Nothing is sacred. I would build a stone support for it. A wall to keep the tree up. This tree is 200 years old!!! I guess nothing is sacred....

    At 200 the tree has outlived it's "natural" life.

    Having been a professional gardener at the end of my career, I would have to agree. It sounds like the tree is on life support. Magnolias are not long-lived and should be removed....and replaced.
    The wood should be harvested and set aside for the creation of keepsakes, etc. for historical purposes.
    Closing on 70 years and the price of pot dropping 40 to 50% in BC, 'Donald Trump and the Americans' become a great reason to stay stoned 24/7. Life IS good.

    I knew this thread was coming.... not the person who I thought would start it, though.

    If you read about the tree -- it's been declining regularly over the past few decades and the tree experts recommend that it be removed. A typical magnolia only lasts about 120 years, so this tree, while truly valuable, is on its way out.

    You can't force something to remain alive if it's determined to go.

    They are going to salvage any usable wood, however, in order to make something that will commorate the history of the beautiful tree.

    Your stone wall, while a nice idea, wouldn't keep the tree from dying.

    Maybe the tree just needs a hug?

    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.
