Most trees have immense roots, deep and wide, to anchor their boughs and also to soak up moisture and minerals. It seems natural to suppose that the giant redwood' outdoes them all. The world's tallest tree, you would think, needs to anchor itself with roots that go down at least ICO feet or more. How big are the roots of a giant redwood tree? — from Thomas Juliano, Albany, N.Y.

Here the young coast range is still growing, the climate is mild and westerly winds endow the slopes with misty moisture. Nature, takes ages to create thick layers of rich soil and these lovely young slopes are solid rock, covered with only a few feet of loose dirt. This is the only soil into which the big trees can anchor themselves and father their nourishment. In most cases, the .root system of a redwood tree goes no deeper than 8 feet. However, it spreads far and wide', just below the surface. It may cover an acre and a giant sequoia redwood may have a root system that spreads through three acres. Yet in the redwood groves, the .trunks .of the big trees are often crowded together, sometimes almost touching each other. Imagine, then, the tangling and inter-twining of their root system .just below the surface. This is one reason why most other tree? are crowded out of their stately groves. Imagine also how this surface root system, effects the ecology of the big trees, how they survive in their surroundings. Gale winds can uproot them and lone redwoods ere most likely to get blown down, Their safety is in crowded groves that baffle the brefees, Imagine how thjs safety js threatened _ when a highway is cut thought the.' stately giants, or wJien iunv bermen clear Wig bare patches Jn the; foreft, The root system of many frees are damaged. The redwoods left standing are exposed to wind and weather and are very likely to be uprooted. This is why experienced lumbermen no longer strip areas of a redwood forest. The trees for chopping are selected carefully. Seedlings are planted to replace them with new growth. This is proper conservation. The vast redwoods forest of the past are dwindling but uncounted numbers of the big trees still stand in northern California. The tallest one we know stands 368% feet tall. Its scaly cones are 1 inch long and it takes more than 120,000 of its seed .to weigh a pound. But one of those tiny seeds may grow a tree more than 300 feet tall and perhaps; live through 3,000 years of human history. Send questions on postal card to Ask Andy, P.O.
