In tree rings What ring is the newest growth?

The newest ring in a tree is the outermost (and largest) ring of the sapwood (the wood that carries water upward).There is a thin layer of cells under the bark (both hard outer and softer inner sections) called cambium that is responsible for outward growth of the tree. In seasonal areas the growth is much slower in winter and this forms a darker band of growth than in the summer. You can count the age of a tree by counting one light ring and one dark ring as a year; the oldest wood is in the center and the newest wood is the newly formed rings towards the outside.
