Explain how a Japanese maple tree, having only red …

Maples "bleed," and while pruning them in spring when the sap is flowing does not harm them, the sap is messy and pruning at that time is typically avoided. Spring pruning has a greater impact on growth, as leaf area is reduced and less photosynthesis will occur during the growing season. Pruning in late summer and early fall minimizes the impact on growth, as leaves remain on the tree during the entire growing season. To reduce susceptibility to disease and insects, and ensure minimum impact on the growth of the tree, prune twigs and branches early in the growth of the tree. For more information on maple problems, refer to the fact sheet .

However, it doesn't explain why sap flow requires: (1) sucrose in the sap, and (2) living cells.

Photosynthesis - Bonsai trees and plants in general, use light energy from the sun to convert carbon dioxide and water into glucose and oxygen. This process is called photosynthesis and without "it" there would be no "us", so in a very real sense, bonsai is life! Photosynthesis takes place in the green parts of trees and plants, the leaves. The green color of leaves comes from the chlorophyll molecules in the chloroplasts.

Japanese Maple, Revisited by photosynthesis …

Chloroplasts - Chloroplasts contain the essential life-giving photosynthetic pigments. Each chloroplast is like a tiny carbohydrate factory and out of this little factory comes the food for the plant, or bonsai tree, and practically every other living thing on earth - including you and me. Carbohydrates create more than is needed to perform the photosynthesis process and this "excess" carbohydrate material gets converted into starch. (An important carbohydrate is sugar or glucose - a basic fuel and building material for much of life.)

The starch in living ray cells is hydrolyzed to sucrose as the temperature warms in the spring.
As the temperature continues to drop, water freezes along the inside walls of hollow xylem cells and in the intercellular spaces.

Finding a tree that can grow in full shade can be a bit tricky sometimes. After all, most plants crave as much sun as they can get during the day so that their leaves can perform photosynthesis. , according to gardening expert Marie Iannotti, is "Less than 3 hours of direct sunlight each day, with filtered sunlight during the rest of the day. Full shade does not mean no sun."

Additional ice forms as water vaporizes from surrounding cells, much like the formation of frost on a misty winter morning.

So, Then, How Does One Keep A Bonsai Alive Forever? Trees that are being: grown, nurtured, trained, and developed using traditional bonsai techniques have the very real potential of living forever. The reason this potential exists is because a bonsai grown by a professional (and so must yours for the same incredible results to be possible) is cared for very precisely and very meticulously. On a daily basis the every need of the bonsai are met, starting with the essentials of proper watering and sunlight exposure.
And on a seasonal basis, the bonsai's health is monitored and maintained through the observation and pruning of the trees root system. This enables potential problems to be seen and addressed before they can jeopardize the health of the bonsai and the pruning encourages the development of healthy new roots. The branch structure is also monitored and maintained on a regular basis, allowing branches to be removed if they are deemed as possibly dangerous to the tree and beneficial new shoots are allowed to grow so that they may benefit the future health of the tree.
This careful and calculated care management keeps the bonsai in a constant state of growth, because the bonsai, just like its full-size cousin on the front lawn, is genetically programmed to achieve maturity. The essential difference is: by preventing the bonsai from reaching maturity, you are preventing it from ever reaching old age and falling victim to the troubles that inevitably go along with aging process.
A bonsai tree - your bonsai tree - if given the proper and essential care, will always remain healthy, growing, and youthful. And, if everyone that is responsible for its care, after you become mulch, continues to care for it properly, it will and should out live them, as well!

Chlorophyll is a green pigment found in leaf cells giving them their green color. These pigments can absorb light from the sun and use it for photosynthesis. Sugar Maple trees also contain other pigments called carotenoid, which are yellow/orange pigments, and anthocyanins, which are red pigments. The last two pigments are not seen in Maple Trees all times of the year, mostly because chlorophyll is highly expressed the rest of the time essentially washing out the other pigments.
