Life Cycle of a Tree


« Back to Album Photo 7 of 11 Previous | Next
A sapling is a small tree usually between 1 and 4 inches in diameter at 4.5 feet. This is the standard height where a tree’s diameter is measured – diameter at breast height (DBH).

However, it is growing rapidly. The sapling will still encounter similar types of competition and threats to that of a seedling.
