Agree with D

D - is wordy but if you see closely...
trees cannot use conditions to grow.. but conditions can enable the trees to grow.

I am not convinced. Why cannot trees use conditions to grow?

IMO D....Coditions is plural and entire sentence using simple present tense, so we need to use enble. Also Conditions should be followed by 'that' therefore D.

Why is D better than A?

We are talking about a specific point in time when all the mentioned conditions happen together.

So no need for continuous tense.

D. "conditions enable", they don't "grow".
I think a real alternative to D is A. If one insert "the" before "trees", A and D will mean exactly the same things.

But its not saying that 'conditions grow'. B is saying'.....trees to grow'.
