tree trunk. The left side of this trunk bark has fallen off due
to sun damage which killed tissue; leaving a weakness in the
botany, trunk refers to the main structural member of a tree that
is supported by and directly attached to the roots and which in
turn supports the branches. The trunk is also often called the
bole. The trunk is covered by the bark, which is an important
diagnostic feature in tree identification, and which often
differs markedly from the bottom of the trunk to the top,
depending on the species. The trunk, or bole, is the most
important part of the tree for timber production.
like many other living organisms, trunks can be vulnerable to
damage. One common form of trunk damage is sunburn.
