I know nothing about preservation of trees, but I do have a thought.
Whatever is made of this tree -- be it tables, boxes, etc. -- I think a
little metal plate should be attached (as permanently as possible without
rendering harm to the wood) that informs people from where the wood came,
i.e. the historical importance.  This would, in decades to come, help to
preserve the history and, perhaps, add value to the pieces.

I'm a little irritated.  I live in Nashville and I heard nothing in
Nashville of the sale of the Ryman flooring as I would have jumped on that.

 

When Clinton was in the White House, some nut landed his small plane on the
south lawn, crashing into a magnolia tree planted by Andrew Jackson.
Several large limbs were broken and taken down as a result.  The president
joked that he was going to enjoy burning the logs in the fireplace smoking a
cigar thinking about Andy one night.  We quickly sent letters asking that he
offer the wood to craftsmen to make things out of the wood and offer them
for sale.  The wood burned.  

 

When the tornadoes came through Nashville in 96 and uprooted hundreds of
trees at The Hermitage - they collected all of the cedar wood (again,
planted by Jackson) that they could and offered it to local woodworkers who
made boxes, pens, all sorts of things that when sold, benefited The
Hermitage.  I have one of the boxes in my office now.  

 

The oldest tree in Tennessee is located in Natchez Trace State Park - a
pecan tree.  Planted in the mid-1700's they say.  It too is deteriorating
rapidly.  I looked at it last spring and it is mostly rotted - and imagine
that this is the case with your tree.  Ask them to try and salvage as much
of the wood as possible and to make small round tables out of the large
limbs, make boxes, anything to preserve parts of the tree for posterity.  I
hope this works for you.

 

A plaque?  It is a good gesture now but in 20 years, no one will care that
an old tree once stood there.  My opinion only.

 

Good luck

"An historic, pre-Civil War tree on our campus is beyond being saved and

 

according to our arborist needs to come down. We would like to

 

memorialize the tree in some way, perhaps placing a plaque in its

 

location."

 

Similar to what others have said:  I have a piece of the original Ryman

Theater wood flooring- original home of the Grand Ole Opry - it has a

plaque on it describing from whence it came...  I am sure that this

memento raised a considerable amount of money to help them renovate.

 

Perhaps you could have the logo or replica of the school building

created in a bas relief to be viewed as you enter the school.
