As a tree ages, its dependency changes - it becomes better able to share resources. When a mature tree declines and begins to die, she sends her resources back into the network, while the younger trees begin nurturing their own young charges. Nothing is wasted.

“The living and the dead,
The awake and the sleeping,
The young and the old are all one and the same.
When the ones change, they become the others.
When those shift again, they become these again.”

Heraclitus
