Topic tags/keywords: green wood question

Hey fellow wood workers,

I have a question about green wood? A living tree let’s say a hard cherry the moisture inside of it when it has been cut into boards, is that moisture sap? Or is it water?

Thanks.

It would be sap when it was cut down but as it drys water would be what was evaporated the minerals and sugers would remain in the wood cells
