How do trees grow in permafrost?

    One explanation for how trees grow in permafrost is the fact that there is a layer of active soil above the permafrost, which makes it possible for trees to attain nutrients and a growing medium. During the warmer months, this permafrost most likely thaws to the condition that allows trees to nurture itself with the soil layer and minerals that were previously frozen. Although trees in this situation may not have the best living conditions, it is sufficient in supporting their survival and existence in such harsh environment.
