some of the oldest trees in piedmont park are the water oaks (quercus nigra), which are scattered all around, especially at the south end of the park and around the lake---but they are nearing the end of their lives and starting to fall---most of one fell in june---this one is marked, literally---it's apparently hollow and at one point, indicated by the handy arrow, one can see entirely through the tree---they should wait until it blows over, which would probably occur when nobody is around----i'm willing to take my chances
