Why don’t trees grow above the timberline?



  1. 0 Votes

    The timberline refers to the area at which trees are no longer able to grow, not the height they grow to. Trees cannot grow beyond the timberline because of insufficient or inappropriate environmental conditions – the soil could be unsuitable, the air could be too cold, not the right air pressure, not enough moisture, etc. Imagine a forest that suddenly stops at an open field. The line of trees that line the field would be considered the timberline.
