Disobedience = rebellion = sin. The wages of sin is death.

It wasn't the tree that was death, but eating of it in disobedience to God.

That said we can learn a lot from our errors and mistakes. Trial and error is time tested way of learning wisdom.

What the tree does is protect the created world from the potential harm caused by someone who is in rebellion to God.
