Ask a Naturalist: How Long do Trees Live

Trees! They are all around us here in Iowa & we know there are a lot of different kinds, but how long do they live? How do we know? Ranger & Naturalist Ryan Penney has the scoop for you in this week’s Ask a Naturalist.

Thank you Riley from Oakland for that terrific question. We hope we gave you some good answers. Our Naturalists also created a couple of tree activities to help you practice your “Dendrochronology” skills.
