Because they're lower growing and because they have shallower roots are the reasons why shrubs tend to grow and reach their mature height before trees. Shrubs that mature to a height of around 30 feet/9.144 meters may be considered small trees. But no matter the height, their shallower roots allow them to stake their claims first to the necessary, life sustaining dissolved nutrients that soak into the soil.

If you cut a Eucalyptus back to ground level in the spring it will grow as a shrub and show juvenile foliage, let it grow and it will quickly become a tree.
A tree or shrub is a plant that has a thick stem called a trunk and branches with leaves on them. The trunk and branches are brown and the leave are usually green, yellow, red… or purple.
A ground dwelling vine.
River birch, cottonwoods, bald cedars. The Everglades.
Definitely a tree. Fourty feet. Though scraggly old things may resemble shrubs but ask the apple preservationist before removal. Many old varieties need preservation.
because there is lichens and mosses
Other shrubs put out seeds and those seeds germinate and spread on to other areas of grass.
Yes, in personal experience start with a four inch deeper than normal pot for best results but consider how fierce a competitor the tree is and water and feed accordingly.
they have long roots in order to reach down as far as possible into the ground to gather whatever nutrients and water there is, they have thick barks to help retain water and …they have sharp thorns to reduce surface area, as if there was a large surface area,(like a leaf) more water would be evaporated and the trees in the desert need to hold onto as much water as they can. the sharp thorns could also be a mechanism to deter predators!
This question cannot be answered until weknow where here is.
The Japanese have become world-renown for Bonsai, the art of grooming miniature trees and shrubs (usually various pines) to grow in small pots, trays or bowls. Bonsai evol…ved out of an ancient Chinese tradition of crafting small trees in bowls -- early Chinese illustrations from the 8th century show bonsai growing in bowls. The Japanese began crafting bonsai turned it into an art form that has spread internationally. Early references to bonsai in Japan appear by the 10th century. The point of bonsai is to "design" the tree as if it's a living sculpture, with careful aesthetic attention to composition, balance and blank spaces. Some trees are groomed to look like they've been growing on a windy hillside, with the branches leaning to one side. The same meticulous attention to trimming is often applies to full-sized outdoor trees in the Japanese landscape, in city parks and private yards. Bonsai's popularity ha sled to the formation of organizations and clubs for enthusiasts all over the world. One note about bonsai: It's pronounced "BOHN-SIGH" with a long "o" like in "bone." Some people mispronounce it as "banzai," which is a cheer, and has nothing to do with miniature trees.
