This one appears to be the oldest, right down to having a magnolia sprouting in the decaying part of the trunk. Given the invasive root systems of magnolias, it would be interesting to see how this one grows.
I doubt we'll ever have that opportunity. Someone with a chainsaw will come around to develop the area. It would be better if he didn't.
Perhaps one darkened evening of a new moon, these old trees will walk over to the arb, and put down roots there.
