I can totally buy the idea people may have killed them.

Who moved the lawn under this one, Lions?

Maybe you aren't supposed to MOW around them?

Did anybody spray roundup? Looks pretty manicured.

"While the cause of the die-off remains unclear, the researchers “suspect that the demise of monumental baobabs may be associated at least in part with significant modifications of climate conditions that affect southern Africa in particular”.

Further research is needed, said the team from Romania, South Africa and the United States, “to support or refute this supposition”."

As usual the devil is in the details.
At least they are approaching it in a scientific manner.

I would not be surprised if there were a chemical cause of some sort involved.

Heating and cooling are natural cycles of the earth. Happened before and will happen again and nothing can be done to stop it.

^This. Carbon emissions from humans are just a tiny drop in a huge bucket. Humans and wildlife thrived in the past when the carbon levels on the planet were insanely higher. This whole carbon tax thing is just a globalist scam to line the pockets of psychos like the Koch brothers and Soros of the world, and to keep 3rd world countries from developing. The whole carbon tax thing is extremely anti-humanitarian.

Most of the things that ever lived are dead, and eventually every living thing will have it's time to die. If we are expediting the process in some minute way, it's really not that big of a deal to me. Should we go around and kill all of the big cats in Africa to save the elephants from them? Where does it end?

People like to think they are in charge. Fact of the matter is SOL is in charge and we are simply at the suns mercy.

The USA is not the biggest carbon producers on the planet. We sent all of our factories to China which have no regulations at all. Things arent as simple as blame conservatives all the time.

Trump is the only major industrialized nation leader that failed to sign on to the paris accords to curb carbon use.

Would you rather we sign a piece of paper and pollute more like China and some others or not sign the paper and pollute less like we already have?

Also, they shouldn't be so sure they are dead.

Some trees sprout "root babies" after the main trunk croaks.

Somebody manicured the lawn in the OP too.

Maybe these trees don't like that.

My baby pine trees are growing better with weeds around them. (Than the ones that died last year with grass clipping mulch.)

We had a discussion about this on another thread today... extinction of life.

It seems that conservatives are fine with this.. we're to keep on partying until we and non-human lifeforms become extinct.

So called liberals are fine with it too. Don't bother reforming the shipping industry, where raw oil is burned on cargo vessels crossing the Pacific Ocean to deliver cheap plastic crap that falls apart after a few uses, just keep proposing a vague carbon tax.
Don't admit that perhaps overpopulation might be a concern....especially in these same countries where women have eight babies each. Where the median age is currently 20 which means they are only just getting started.
Or suburban sprawl....when was the last time an eco terrorist firebombed a new development under construction, the 90s?

Good point. Even my apple, maple, walnut, etc. trees don't have much grass right near the trunk. Mostly just plain dirt and moss, a few of the hardiest weeds. Even dandelions don't seem to grow that close.

I would not be surprised if there were a chemical cause of some sort involved.

Part of the natural die off process is that the trees start to hollow out around the 1,000 year mark, and eventually, fracture and fall. The Sunderland pub (as posted above) was estimated to be 6,000 years old. There has been evidence of bushmen having sheltered in the tree, and fires inside the tree dating back to the 1600s.

The Sunderland baobab (pub tree) eventually broke, and the owners of the farm chose to let it stay there and naturally decompose. Another of the ‘oldest’ trees, also started to split after becoming so hollow.

I dunno, I would really need to read the full study, I think, and analyze the structure of each tree, as well as how it died off.

There have also been a number of baobabs fall ill with a fungus.

I lost a ginormous basswood tree to fungus last year. The cost of getting it cut down didn't sit too well with my pocketbook but they said it was going to fall on my neighbor's house sooner than later so it had to be done.

You and Luv are making sense. It just seems odd that OP immediately jumped to global warming. Liberals and their pet projects and all. He seemed to disappear after Luv dropped some knowledge on him.

I love reading about the little mysteries of our planet and solar system, and how little we still know about them.

Many of these trees are 1,000-2,500 years old in this study, and equatorial Africa experienced a sudden jump in their warming trend (that is also seen in other parts of the world) about 2,000 years ago. Did global warming contribute to the current trees being able to properly germinate and grow, while killing off older trees? It’ll be hard to quantify if it’s a natural progression that is designed to happen every few thousand years, because of human interference, but it’s an interesting theory!

Beautiful tree.
We had them up in the Kimberley.
