Religion: Redwood Roots
web posted September 23, 2015
By Pastor Phillip Howell
RELIGION- I was reading about the giant Redwoods in California some of which tower 350 feet into the air and are more than 2,500 years old. I have always been taught that a tree’s height was determined by the depth of its roots. This usually noted to encourage you to go deeper into your faith. This is true only to a point.  So it would seem to me that the Redwoods must possess an enormous root system extending hundreds of feet into the ground underneath. But actually, I was wrong. In fact the roots on a Redwood are extremely shallow—no deeper than six to ten feet. This then begs the question how do these massive trees stand a chance of staying upright for even ten seconds, much less thousands of years?
