Might be a good way to get clean water next to a polluted body of water.

Maple, Birch, Cottonwood, Grapevive....all found where there is plenty of water anyway. That's my point about using them to filter polluted water.

Looks innocuous donnit? They grow up to 35 feet tall. Just right for tapping.


OH DEAR. Late edit add (*shame*) -- It skipped my mind that we do not have to worry about dripping stuff -- we are regularly served all the clean (and yummy and nutritious) stuff in pre-made unbreakable containers. And we have giant rubber trees. BLEECHH
