timber line(waldgrenze) A line that marks that altitudinal limit of trees that are in a close canopy and grow erect and tall. It occurs below the baumgrenze or tree line proper, and below the kampfzone (in which the trees often show the krummholz condition). It is commonly depressed to below its natural level by fires caused by human activities.
