The Life of a Tree
In this interactive activity adapted from the National Arbor Day Foundation, explore the intricate life of a tree. The trunk of a tree functions as both a supporting structure and a pathway, transporting food down from the photosynthesizing leaves and conducting water and minerals up from the roots. Look inside a tree to learn about the xylem, cambium, and phloem, and to see how the tree's rings provide a record of the environmental factors that affected its growth and life cycle.
