Sure, you may already know the answer to the question of how trees transport water up to such incredible heights. But this video from Veritasium is still worth it. It explains principles I didn’t even realize existed (water can only rise about 10 meters when sucked through a tube?) and makes a very compelling case for the title of the video, “Trees are freaking awesome.”

Previously from Veritasium, we learned about where trees come from.
