The rate, or speed, at which trees grow is
dependent on multiple factors. The most
important of these include genetics, soil,
drainage, water, fertility, light, but there are
many more as well.
This is a difficult question to answer because
the growth rate of any plant depends on site
conditions and maintenance. In most cases, the
growth rate given for a particular plant is based
on optimal conditions.
Trees do not grow like the human body, they grow
by producing new cells in a very limited number of
places called meristems, where cell division takes
The following is a nice and interesting site where
you can learn how a tree grows.
Trees grow out and down, and depending on the
type of tree and the optimal conditions, they will
take different times to grow.
