  1. tree trunk

    A tree trunk refers to the main stem of a tree that provides stability and supports the branches. It connects the roots, which absorb water and nutrients from the ground, to the leaves, which absorb sunlight for photosynthesis. The trunk is typically covered by bark and is composed of layers such as the cambium, xylem, phloem, and heartwood, which play essential roles in the tree's growth and nutrient transportation.

Examples of tree trunk in a Sentence

  1. Karen Crawford:

    I have never seen anything like it before. The squirrel had its paw raised and the bird had its beak wide open, it was like they were going to have a fight. Karen Crawford, 59, captured the face-off as the pair appeared to be having a row over a handful of nuts on a tree trunk. In the shot, the red squirrel is perched vertically on a tree stump with its paw in the air, as the bird sits on the other side with its beak wide open. (Credit: SWNS) Perhaps even more remarkable, Crawford admitted she did not even realize she took the photos until she got home. I thought wow when I got home and saw the picture and the reaction I have had to it has been really strong.

  2. Tom Robbins:

    When she was a small girl, Amanda hid a ticking clock in an old, rotten tree trunk. It drove woodpeckers crazy. Ignoring tasty bugs all around them, they just about beat their brains out trying to get at the clock. Years later, Amanda used the woodpecker experiment as a model for understanding capitalism, Communism, Christianity, and all other systems that traffic in future rewards rather than in present realities.

  3. Lao Tzu:

    A tree trunk the size of a man grows from a blade as thin as a hair. A tower nine stories high is built from a small heap of earth.
