Ermm.. @thomaster Sensei, I need you! Cx

uhhh :O that's a hard one.. I guess the tree needs the right climate, not too hot/not too cold. When it's too cold, the roots of the tree can freeze and that will block the sap xylem sap flow. Same thing for the phloem sap because no water reaches the leaves. Also when it's cold, things have the tendency to go slower. I think when it's too cold, the sap production will be reduced.

What are the best climate conditions that produce the most sap? I'm thinking like warm weather, where the tree get's enough sun and nutrients..
thomaster
  • thomaster
yes but not too warm because a lot of the water will evaporate from the leaves when it's too hot

i actually have no idea... I read that maple sap is produced in cold climates (like in canada). In the winter these trees rely on a snowpack to prevent root freezing.

I'm still lost on the best climates :/

I think it depends on the kind of tree :/

I thought it only came from maple trees

no sap is in every tree, maple syrup is the xylem sap of the maple tree :D

Not every tree, I don't think.. But I think my question is about maple trees and their sap production in the best climate.
thomaster
  • thomaster
Xylem and phloem is like the circulatory system of the trees. Humans can't live without blood.. plants cannot live without sap. the only trees that have no sap, are dead trees :P I'll try to find something about maple trees and climates :P

Maple trees prefer cooler climates like in the northeast and north, as well in canada.
thomaster
  • thomaster
Summer maximum 90 to 100° F and minimum -40 to 20° F in winter

precipitation: 20-50 inches rain and 1 to 150 inches snow

Okay... The most used maple tree for syrup production: Acer saccharum (sugar maple). The reason for the fact that they grow those sap producing trees in northern states and canada is quite simple. When it becomes cold, the maple tree stores energy in the roots. This energy is starch. The tree relies on a snowpack in winter, the snow is a good insulator and protects the roots (which contain your precious maple syrup) from freezing. When warm weather returns (in spring) the starch will be converted to sugar that rises in the xylem sap and goes up to the shoots to produce new leaves. At this point they drill a taphole in the tree to make the rising sap come out of the trees. Next... pancakes :)

Omg pancakes. Cx Thank you buddy! c:

Do you have a source for that?
thomaster
  • thomaster
I used http://www.ehow.com/facts_7882255_do-live-better-cooler-weather.html And a bit of improvisation. It makes sense that there will be less syrup production in warmer areas because less starch is stored in the roots when it doesn't get very cold. (less energy needed to reboot the tree in spring :P )
