Hmmm I'll be interested to see what some expert says. I would assume they do. Certainly very old trees stop growing and seem to take longer and longer to "come out" in the spring. I assume their functions slow down/wear out just like us. I also know that the average life span of a tree varies by species and I assume it's not just about vulnerability to diseases.
Absolutely they can. And depending on the plant, they can have shorter or longer lifespans. Most often, the plant will make seeds or new plants will shoot off from the roots before the original plant dies. Some trees do have lifespans of hundreds or thousands of years, but they too don't live forever.
