The boundary where vegetation ends is called the timber line or
I cannot find proof of this but I think it is simply called the 'TREE LINE' - sincere apologies if this is not correct.

What is natural vegetation?
Around the world, before humans began to cut down forests and to plant crops and gardens (and even to move plants from one country to another), each place on earth had a community of plants that were adapted to the area and climate zone in which they lived (such as cacti in the deserts or oak forests in temperate climate and giant redwoods in California). These original plant communities are what is called "natural vegetation".

Vegetation and its types and distribution in India?
The tropical rain forests are playing an important role in natural vegetation in India. These types of forests include the tropical evergreen forests and tropical semi-evergreen forests and they are mostly found in places where there is plenty of rainfall and sunshine throughout the year. Trees in these forests do not have a decided season of casting off leaves, because the area remains warm and wet all through the year. Growth of the trees is usually at its best where rainfall is in surplus of 200 cm, with a short dry season. Therefore, these forests are called as archetypal rain-forests. Such regions are limited within rainy slopes of the Western Ghats, plains of West Bengal and Orissa and North-easternIndia. Trees grow very briskly in these forests and attain sublime heights of about 60 metres and above. The number of species in these forests is too vast and too assorted to utilise each one of them commercially. Some of the commercially functional trees of these forests comprise ebony, mahogany and rosewood. Another variety of natural vegetation in India can be found in the tropical deciduous forests. They are called as deciduous (whether it is moist or dry) as they cast leaves for about six to eight weeks in summer. They are also called the monsoon forests with all their grandeur and beauty. This is so because they form a natural cover approximately all over India, especially within regions having 200 and 75 cm of annual rainfall. Most of the tropical deciduous forests are found in the state of Kerala in India. Apart from Kerala, these forests can be found in the eastern slopes of Western Ghats and also in the northeastern parts of the peninsular plateau and in the valleys of the Himalayas. The tropical deciduous forests are pretty substantial, cost-effective and they demand a lot of maintenance, as they are less resistant to fire. These forests can be divided into moist and dry deciduous forests. The rain forests of Southern India are contributing hugely to the natural vegetation in India. The most luxuriant rain forests lie on the southwestern coast, in the state of Kerala. Here the lagoons are canopied by coconut trees and lead to the longest uninterrupted stretch of rain forests in the country. The Andaman and Nicobar Islands and the state of Arunachal Pradesh are some of the other regions with well preserved rain forests in India. Apart from that, dense sandal, teak and sisoo (Dalbergia sissoo) forests also flourish on the wet Karnataka plateau. On the other hand, the dry Telengana plateau in Andhra Pradesh offers only thorny scrub and wild Indian date palm. Natural vegetation in India can be found in the desert region of India also. The Thar Desert presents a wonderful picture of natural vegetation in India. The trees in this desert are short and stout, and stunted by the scorching sun. Some of the most common trees in this region include cacti, etc. All the above mentioned varieties of forests and areas are contributing hugely to the natural vegetation in India.
