Description:

Every December, people cut down pine trees and other evergreens and stick them in their houses. The trees start sucking up water right away (unless you wait too long between cutting the tree and putting it in water, of course). A new study helps to explain how the heck water moves up the trunk of cone-making trees called "conifers."
