THE WATER THAT WAKENS THE TREES FROM THEIR WINTER SLUMBER
In autumn, before winter, birch trees store nutrients and vitamins to prepare for the next period of growth. When winter comes, the trees start their dormant period as their roots are packed with goodness.
In spring, warmth triggers the roots to draw spring water from the ground up into the trunk. The stored nutrients are collected and brought up to the dormant branches . The sap is naturally filtered and enriched by the tree. This spring elixir is the magic that wakens the trees from their winter slumber, bringing the forest back to life!
The sap only flows for a short period of time. It starts when snow melts away and stops at first leaves. Because birch water tastes delicious and is also healthy for us, we stay ready and tap the sap for you when that moment comes.
As we don’t want to disturb the trees in their natural revitalising cycle , we only take a fraction of the sap and plug the hole back when we leave. The trees don’t even notice .
