The roots anchor it in the ground and absorb water and minerals from the soil. The trunk and branches carry sap and lift the leaves into the sunlight. The leaves are the food factories of the tree. A tree grows higher and wider by lengthening its twigs and branches at the tips. At the ends of the twigs, the terminal buds are continually adding new cells. Meanwhile, the branches, twigs, and trunk grow thicker. Most trees have a section called the cambium, which is a layer of cells where growth in diameter occurs. Every year the layer of cambium between the sapwood and the inner bark adds a layer of new cells to the older wood. Each layer forms a ring— and by counting the rings one can tell the age of a tree. Water and dissolved minerals travel up from the roots to the leaves in the new layers of wood inside the cambium. This part of the trunk is called the sapwood. Other sap carries plant food down from the leaves through a layer inside the bark. As the free grows, the older sapwood stiffens and loses connection with the leaves. Then it just stores water, and finally it becomes solid heartwood. While the cambium makes the tree trunk and its branches grow in size, the leaves produce the food which builds the tissues of the tree. Using the energy from sunlight, the green coloring matter in the leaves (chlorophyll) takes carbon dioxide out of the air. It combines the carbon dioxide with water and dissolved minerals from the roots to form sugars and starches. FUN TIME The Chuckle Box Helen: What do you grow in your garden? Hank: Tired!
