The redwood tree in California is famous for its height, which can reach more than 90 meters, equivalent to 30 floors. Strangely, scientists found that the roots of redwood trees were shallow and floating on the ground. Generally speaking, the taller the plant, the deeper the root. Without deep roots, it is impossible to get sufficient water and nutrients.
Large areas of redwood trees are closely connected with each other, one by one. The shallow roots floating on the surface and closely connected easily, quickly and massively absorb the water and nutrients they rely on for growth, and use the energy used by other plants to take deep roots to grow upward, so they can quickly become towering trees.
