In ecological terms, yes, trees are producers.


" Producer " is a name given to the organisms in food chains who produce their own food - also known as autotrophic organisms. This food generating proccess can be achieved through photosynthesis (common to most plants, algae and some bacteria) or chemosynthesis.

Since trees are plants and therefore able to assimilate photic energy into sugary substances through photosynthesis, they can be considered producers in food chains.
