Do trees die of old age?

Can trees live forever or do the trees eventually get too old and die of old age?

Yes trees can and do die of old age eventually but a tree would have to reach around 3,000 to 5,000 years or more before the tree can die of old age.

Most times a tree will die from diseases and bugs eating at the trees before it reaches the age to die of old age.

Also some trees will be cut down well before it can reach old enough age to die too.
