Digorys tree

I was wandering what happened to the tree dogory planted that was suppose to not let Jadis pass.

The books don't say. But my theory is eventually the Narnians neglected it or even forgot its purpose and used it for kindling.
For better or worse-for who knows what may unfold from a chrysalis?-hope was left behind.

Nothing lasts forever - that is a common theme throughout the Narnia books. My guess is that eventually it just grew old and died. Perhaps fell down in a storm much like the tree in our world.

The impression is that it stood for a long time and protected Narnia, but eventually Jadis got in, so its power must have waned.
