Old Giant Sequoia trees may rot in the center yet remain alive. Here is an opening through the bottom of a tree in Sequoia National Park, California. In the lower right corner we see scarring form a fire on a neighboring tree (that did die). Their thick bark protects them from fire - because fire will destroy their competition, it helps them live longer.
