Tree Life Stages

Stage One: Infant

The first life stage a tree goes through is infancy, just like us humans.

During this phase, trees are at their most vulnerable. Trees are very thin and small, though some may quickly grow taller than the average human.

Infant trees will often survive just fine on their own, but with coaxing, care, and a little attention, infant trees can grow tall and strong.
