Existing Bonsai A To Z Entry for Trunk of the tree


Trunk of the tree

 - (Tree Parts)
Trunk of the tree - Bonsai Tree Parts Bonsai Care

The trunk of the tree provides both structural support and also carries moisture and nutrients upwards from roots to shoots and sugars downwards from the leaves to those areas of the tree where it is needed. At its centre is the "heartwood". This is surrounded by the "xylem" (or sapwood) which is in turn surrounded by the "cambium". The cambium is surrounded by the "phloem" (inner bark), which is protected by the outer bark.
