Lara Roman, with the US Forest Service, points out that tree half-life is a more meaningful figure - and here's why.

Three years ago, two 80 year old trees at Auburn University were deliberately poisoned by a rival sports fan; maybe you read about it at the time. After much effort to save the trees, the University finally realized it was impossible and had to have them removed.

This year, two new trees will be planted in Silva Cells to create, someday, a new legacy.
