Recently, I read something about the giant sequoia redwood trees. These trees, which reach hundreds of feet high, have a very shallow root system. The roots practically appear to lay atop the ground. When you think about the height and weight of the trees, it seems amazing they don’t crash down during a storm.
Why don’t they? Scholars say it is the grove factor. Growing so close to one another helps them withstand the elements of nature. How? The roots reach in all directions, tangling with the roots from other redwoods. As they intertwine they create a stabilizing foundation that helps each tree continue to stand. This affirms the belief that a redwood growing by itself wouldn’t last long, but a redwood forest can last thousands of years.
