Why did this tree branch spout water when it was cut?
Rick and my son spent the day on Friday trimming trees around the house. They cut the branch of this one tree (probably a maple)...and a spout of water came out of the center of the part that was left on the tree. They said it shot out pretty hard for about 15 seconds, then gradually died back. It was like it was under quite a bit of pressure.
Both of them have a lot of experience with things like this, and neither of them had seen this before.
