According to Maiuri –

“The only wall of the portico that, at the moment of the eruption, preserved its pictorial decoration, was the wall of the north portico, the one which, however, was found completely fallen, other than the last short stretch of just over 14 metres at the far north-east corner.

On the other two long walls of the west and south porticos, and the wall on the east side, nothing was seen other than a minimum trace of decoration.”

II.7.5 Pompeii. December 2005. Looking south across plaster casts of ancient plane tree roots. 
At the time of the AD79 eruption the double row of plane trees were almost 100 years old.
According to Maiuri –
“Completely essential to the life and function of the Palestra were the trees. 
Cavities of large roots and remains in the ash bank of logs and branches, were not only noticed in the work of excavation of the earth and clean-up of the area of the amphitheater piazza, but they were also along the large avenue that runs outside the northern side of the building, and what is more important, in the inner area of the Palestra.”
