Does anyone know of a good source for tree lifespans?  How long do stonefruit trees live?  How about hazelnut or pecan trees?

USDA PLANTS Database: http://plants.usda.gov/index.html
Under 'More Information: Characteristics' tree lifespan is listed.

Lifespan: What is the expected lifespan (in years) of a perennial plant relative to other species with the same growth habit? For the Tree growth habit: Short: < 100; Moderate: 100 - 250; Long: >250.

This website http://environ.binghamton.edu/urban/edible.html has good info for fruit and nut trees.

FWIW,
Tim
