How much water on a tree when it is raining?
« on: 17/11/2011 04:11:02 »
Hello

Not sure if anyone has ever measured this but i was looking at a tree outside during the rain today and i noticed its branches where slightly lower than when it was dry. So i am wondering how much weight in water does a tree carry when it is raining. With all the leaves and branches they do cover a large surface area.

So does anyone know if this has ever been measured? And is there some ratio of water weight compared to tree type or size?

thanks.
