We have many crepe myrtles in our yard that have been here for 25 to 30 years. We are wondering how long they will live

Found this on another site:

Crepe myrtles live quite a few years if you take care of them. A crepe myrtle lifespan can exceed 50 years. So that’s the answer to the question “how long do crepe myrtle trees live?” They can live a good, long time with suitable care.
