Tree Life Stages

Senior redbud tree.

Stage Five: Senior

Trees become seniors at stage five. Senior trees have flat-topped canopies of heavy limbs, sometimes covered in short sprouts. Gaps start appearing in the canopy as the major limb systems start dying out.

To keep your tree in good health at this stage, and during middle-age, it is a good idea to keep dead limbs pruned out of the tree. Watch for insect and disease attacks that may reduce tree health. In the forest, watch for tree health and growth rates so harvesting returns can be optimized.

While the tree has many more years to live, it is nearing the end of the life stages.
