    Thinking back from my past working in cancer research started me to think. If a tree is grown in Missouri and the same type of tree is grown in another state would this tree be more likly to get a disease unlike the other tree.  Yes it would. Reason is the same for humans even though we have the same genetics we moved . exposed to new toxins. New water new soil. Trees genetics and enviroment factor play a role on how a tree will live.
