The great redwoods of California are one of the beautiful natural wonders of the North America.
These giant evergreens can grow to a towering 300 feet tall and live for hundreds of years.
For all their magnificence, one would think the redwoods would require a deep root system to keep them upright.
Instead, they have roots that spread out along the surface of the forest floor to capture all the moisture possible, intertwining with the roots of other redwoods in the grove.
The interlocking roots securely support and sustain these giant sequoias when storms strike and fierce winds blow.
The trees’ survival depends on the combined support of one another.
When we stand together…support one another…encourage one another…we become strong together, and like the giant redwoods, we keep growing taller.
