Go inside a tree

In one day, a large tree can lift 100 gallons of water out of the ground and discharge it into the air. Watch this Douglas Fir take in water from its root system and move it up through “tubes” and hair-thin fibres to the tips of its needles, where it escapes in the air to keep nearby trees cool and allow water vapour to accumulate.
