    You're welcome.

    As for a movie, I don't think I ever heard of one. I'm not sure it's an epic, and it was epic, that lends itself to 3 hours with an intermission. Though I suppose the voyage synopsis format used for age of sail pirate movies could be adopted. Probably made the news reels.

    Might make a great book or grueling realistic PC flight simulator game though.

    Probably not. Just an old tree that died. After the European settlers moved into this ecosystem in central Texas called the Post Oak Savannah in the mid 1800s, the interruption of the periodic wild fires that were started by the native population and lightning, as well as the driving off of the massive herds of bison, the post oak trees were allowed to move out of the river bottoms and proliferate across the grassland prairies and new farms. These old trees are all about the same age, 150 to 180 years, which is about the typical life span for the species. It is kind of sad that so many of these grand old trees are dying off at the same time.
