We are compiling a worldwide A to Z of Bonsai database. The A to Z is written collaboratively by the people who use it and we would like to encourage anyone reading this page to contribute to what has become the worlds greatest encyclopedia of bonsai terms. Entries when they are made will be added to an editable list which will be checked prior to publication. Photos and images of the bonsai term can be added and links made to relevant web pages.
XYLEM - Also known as SAPWOOD. This section of the TRUNK OF THE TREE sits between the HEARTWOOD and the CAMBIUM. Its function is to transport water and nutrients upwards through the outer annual rings. Sugars are transported downward via the inner BARK (known as the PHLOEM).
