What is the purpose of bark?

    Trees have bark for many reasons. It protects the cambium layer from cuts and scrapes, it slows water loss, it helps protect from extreme temperatures as well as intense sunlight, it is slightly porous and helps the tree to breathe, and “like a scab on a wound, it protects against disease organisms.”
