Cherry trees produce sap because they need water. If it does not rain, the leaves on the cherry tree will start producing sap as a way of drawing out moisture from the atmosphere and channeling it back to its roots. The sugars within the sap also provide an energy-rich food source for insects and animals that feed off of the cherry tree’s leaves.

Cherry trees are usually found in countries that face very dry weather most of the year, such as Brazil and North America. These trees will simply produce more sap than usual, leading to less leaves.

How do you collect cherry tree sap?
