The Capillary Tree

The Capillary Tree

Detailed Description

Ever wonder how a tree as tall as a redwood can get water all the way from its roots to its top leaves? Water is pretty heavy, yet the redwood tree moves thousands of gallons of water (that's 8,000 pounds, or 4 tons) up into its canopy every day, and it does it without doing any work. That's pretty amazing! Here is how it works. http://www.davidlnelson.md/Cazadero/Trees&CapillaryAction.htm
