Cambium

A Root Of A Tree

Cambium is a layer of material inside a plant or tree which consists of actively dividing cells which generate growth for the plant. The cambium is filled with undifferentiated cells which have the ability to differentiate into many different types of cells, depending on where in the plant they are growing. This part of a plant can be vulnerable to damage; if a plant is cut through thecambium or serious injuries occur, the plant may die. For example, if a tree like in the picture above gets cut, it will most likely die.
