What is a tree, the term "Tree" has no universally recognised precise definition. It is generally accepted that a tree is any plant with the general form of an elongated stem, or trunk, which supports the photosynthetic leaves or branches at some distance above the ground. Trees are defined by height, with those under a certain height classified as shrubs.The height which defines a tree varies widely, from 10 m to 0.5 m. But some trees such as large herbaceous plants such as papaya and bananas stretch the broadest definitions of what a tree is.
Another characteristic that is used to define a tree is that it has a woody trunk. This sometimes excludes herbaceous trees such as bananas and papayas, but monocots such as bamboo and palms may be considered trees under such a definition. Despite being herbaceous and not undergoing secondary growth and never producing wood palms and bamboo may produce "pseudo-wood" by lignifying cells produced through primary growth.
Aside from structural definitions, trees are commonly defined by use. Trees may be defined as plants from which lumber can be produced.
