    Trees are a mystery; although they cannot move, they somehow manage to withstand wind, drought, flood, storms, snow, heat and deer. Join curator Stefan Bloodworth as he explores the phenomenon of a tree, including how its needles survive freezing weather and how water manages to travel from its roots to its highest branches.
