    Rubber

    Rubber trees are tall and pretty -- similar to pecan groves. The rubber is harvested for latex gloves and condoms among other things. It can be seen how one side of the tree's bark is slowly "bled" of rubber, white, milky, sticky stuff and collected in a cup. Each night the farmer shaves a thin spiral groove of bark from one side of the tree. The tree's sap or rubber then bleeds from the tree and runs down the spiral groove were it is collected in the cup. When the farmer returns the following evening the rubber is collected and the process continues. A tree will produce rubber for 35 years then the grove is destroyed and replanted.
