Tree Life Stages

Dead redbud branch lying on the ground.

Stage Seven: Death

All trees will inevitably die at some point, and rest in peace. A dead tree can provide a good habitat for wildlife, providing food and shelter.

Trees that have died in hazardous areas should be removed immediately. Otherwise it can be left alone to fall apart in place. When the tree finally falls, it will decay back into the soil.

Now that you know the life stages that a tree goes through, you can test your mettle by trying our Life Stage Identification Quiz.
