If a tree loses its growing tip, will another one grow?



Depends on what you mean by 'tree' - if its a palm, often they don't grow again if the growing tip is destroyed, but on ordinary, broadleaf or coniferous trees, the tree will continue to grow by putting out another apical shoot.

Sometimes several new shoots, requiring corrective pruning.
