Cambium

The vascular cambium of a tree is a layer in the tree trunk that grows in layers, producing on average a new layer or ring every year. The vascular cambium is between the bark, which separates it from the outside, and the sapwood. The growth of the vascular cambium is secondary growth, because the tree stops growing vertically and starts growing horizontally, getting wider and wider.
