If you put marker on a tree trunk at five feet from the ground, and the
tree has a growth rate of one foot per year, how high will the marker be in
ten years?

Hello All,
I'm wanting to put together some questions for a family quiz in which
everyone else are not tree people or know much about trees.

Do you have any good tree related questions that I could use that are not
too difficult and not too obscure please?

I want to give my relatives a fighting chance of getting at least a couple
right, if not more.

Many thanks as always,

with regards
Bettina
