Every year, we are impressed by how trees handle standing outside in 90 degree heat without being able to move and while they provide us with shade, they are not getting much shade themselves. Of course, trees have evolved in very different ways from humans, buy just like us they “sweat out” water in order to hydrate.
This process is known as evapotranspiration. It is how trees transport water through their roots, trunks, branches and eventually out of their leaves. This particular process brings nutrients and water to all parts of the tree, and essentially allows the tree to breathe. That old mantra climate change (whether you are a proponent or not) puts added stress on trees.
