    I am sorry, for you as well as tree. I bought house from commercial landscaper who built it 1976. Boy o boy, yard was envy whole big old neighborhood! Alas, each of my many beautiful ornamental wax myrtles got fungus in root balls, and tho I kept cutting and cutting and cutting them back, eventually all stumps. My older neighbor saw me in yard crying a lil while trying digging up roots, and she patted my shoulder, saying “nothing stays same, Cecilia, everything changes, even trees….”

    Trees do not heal like humans do, instead they rely on chemical barriers called tannins and physical barriers to compartmentalize decay and grow around it. Branch collars separate branch wood from trunk wood and help prevent the spread of decay from a dying branch from infecting the trunk wood. Annual rings act as a barrier and resist the spread of decay. Rays that can be seen in the cross section of some trees help contain decay within a pie shape. A trees strongest method of defence is in the cambium layer with it's ability to grow over defects, add mechanical strength and through cell division creat the corky protective layer known as bark. A trees weakest form of defense, typically, is in the xylem tubes that transport water and nutrients vertically like little straws. A tree will try to plug up the xylem tubes, but most species of trees are not very good at that, so decay spreads faster vertically. That is what forms a hollow trunk.

    In certain areas I have noticed Trees being hollow and in other Areas not as common. Insects possibly?

    It was a seedling in 1868, so 150 years old. Most of the older oaks are hollow in the trunk and so I can't count the rings to tell the age.

    That looks like something from the island. Check out Nanaimo bathtub races.

    Guess how old this White Oak was. I was sad to cut it down, but the tree was dying from Oak Wilt.

    For those times when you only have a short while to dig for artifacts you have to break out the proper tools.
