Bark is the outer covering of a trees trunk and branches.Bark is analogous to an animal's skin.Its purposes are conserving water and protecting the tree's essential living systems from temperature extremes and storms as well as from attacks by diseases, animals and insects.Some tree species have extra-thick bark that protects the tree from brush fires. Bark also transports food and water throughout the tree.Severe bark damage will kill the tree.
