It sounds like it is close to the end of its productive life cycle. At the very least, the tree can be productive for around 25 years. Under ideal conditions, the tree can be productive for 30 or 40 years!

I would make sure to care for it as it should be until it stops producing, or falls apart. See it out with grace!
