Comments: Laurel Oaks have a life span of 50 to 70 years. Tree trunks and large branches often hollow from decay and wood rot. The smallest trunk injury or improper pruning cut can result in columns of decay inside the trunk which are 10, 20 or more feet long. Live Oak, and other Oaks are more resistant to decay and live longer.
