Lesson 3Sap Movement Physiology


Sap too move or not too move

SAP… Too Move or Not Too Move?

  • Many factors effect sap movement during the syrup season.

    • Freezing Nights and Warm Days

    • Minimum and Maximum Temperature

    • Length of Freeze and Thaw

    • Availability of Soil Moisture

    • Sap Sugar Concentration

    • Barometric Pressure

3.1


The details

The Details

  • Freezing temperatures cause the gases in the tree (CO2 and O2) to contract causing a negative pressure (vacuum) in the tree.

  • This allows more water (if available) to be absorbed by the roots.

  • Warm temperatures cause the gases to expand creating a positive pressure in the tree.

3.2


The details cont

The Details Cont.

  • The taphole allows pressure to escape the tree in the form of gases and liquids (sap).

  • This cycle continues throughout the season.

  • Pressures of up to 50 PSI (pounds per square inch) have been recorded.
