Inside a tree there are living tissues. The rough outer bark on a tree trunk consists of dead cells. Just underneath the bark area, is the cambium. This is the part of the trunk that grows. Each year the cambium builds a layer of bark on its outside and a layer of wood inside. The wood inside the cambium jis called sapwood. Like other 'living tilings, sapwood is made up of tiny units called cells. These cells, growing one on top of another in the trunk, form pipes. The sapwood pipes are the most important part of the tree's plumbing system. Sap travels between the roots, deep underground, and the topmost branches and leaves. A column of soil water with minerals in it moves up on set of pipes. A second set of pipes brings down water with food in it. The food, Which is dissolved in the water, gives every part of the tree the energy it needs to grow. How can water rise from the roots to leaves at the top of a tree? Some trees, such as the redwood, are more than a nun dred feet high. And on a warm summer day the sap may move up a tree at the rate of three feet a minute. Scientists have still not been able to figure this out completely. They believe that it is the result of several forces at work at the same time. The explanation that is most widely accepted is that sap rises because of two things: transpiration and the cohesion of water. Transpiration is the evaporation of water from leaves. And cohesion is the force that attracts one particle of water to another. So transpiration supplies the pulling power on the columns of water in the sapwood pipes. The evaporation of the water from the cells of the leaves creates a vacuum in the cells beneath. These cells draw up the water from the cells below, and this process continues all the way down to the roots — and the sap rises. FUN TIME The Riddle Box 1. What did the carpenter say to wall? 2.
