    After much discussion we have decided that the trees are starting to wake
    up from their winter nap. The sap in the tree is like our blood. It
    carries good things that we need to all parts of the body, or tree. The
    tree needs to send nutrition to the new buds from its roots. The buds can't
    make their own food yet. The sap starts moving when the weather starts
    to get warm so that the buds can get nutrients and start to grow.
