    Some trees are very long-lived, but they are not immortal.

    They can live a very long time but eventually they become so large that the insides rot so they fall over.

    There is however one immortal on Earth - The Immortal Jellyfish  Turritopsis dohrnii. It is able to regenerate itself.

     Also sponges have an ability to reform themselves - even if blended up into a soup they will clump together and eventually become a functioning sponge again.

    everything will be mortal ,birth ,aging ,sickness ,death is process that every thing must experience ,like humans or sun ,for example ,sun radiates heat to earth through its nuclear fusion ,but one day ,it will die out ,and stop supplying heat to our earth ,in fact ,tree growth is influenced by season ,but vast majority of tree will sprout in spring ,

    Even trees die. It might take up to 5000 years, but eventually they die, regardless of how perfect the environment is.

    That's not counting natural disasters like storms and fires.

    It will die. There is a limit to growth to everything (with the exception of my waistline) and even capillary action will not raise food and water infinitely.

    No, trees have a life span just like all living things.  Some of them have very short lives while other can last thousands of years.  Eventually the cells stop dividing.

    No, like all complex living organisms they have a finite lifespan.  Eventually cell replication breaks down and becomes increasingly flawed, i.e. the tree enters old age and frailty.  Different species have different average lifespan, much like the animal kingdom.  Some trees reproduce via cloning and some people claim the clones ARE the tree and so live for millennia but anyone with common sense notices that in fact this is a series of trees.

    If you're interested in trees "The Hidden Life of Trees: What They Feel, How They Communicate" by Peter Wohlleben is pretty mindblowing.  It's not some hippy dippy book either.  Trees are far more situationally aware than we commonly think.
