How Do Trees Transport Water from Roots to Leaves?

Watch more with these video collections:

Travel through a part of the water cycle that we don’t often think about: Water’s journey from the roots of a Douglas fir, upward through hair-thin fibers within the trunk, reaching the tree’s photosynthesizing needles. From there, the water escapes into the air, eventually returning to earth as precipitation.

From CalAcademy, this is how trees transport water from roots to leaves.
