How do we get rubber from trees?


Rubber comes from a tropical tree. The juice of the rubber tree, called latex, is extracted through slanting cuts is the bark. The juice drips into a container attached to the tree. It is then collected and made into rubber, which can be used for car tyres, boots etc.,

Another juice extracted from trees is maple syrup, it comes from the maple tree which is grown in North America. The Juice flows out of holes bored into the wood of the tree. Maple syrup is popular in the USA and is used on pancakes and ice cream
