We moved a few months back (something I’ll share about in a different post) from being an easy three miles from the ocean to more into the mountains and among the redwoods – though only a mere minutes from one another it really did amaze me at how quickly the landscape changes in this area.
I’ve always been an ocean girl and I still consider myself one, but there has always been a special place in my heart with mountain ranges that held redwood trees. With the ocean I’ve always felt connected. Connected to myself. Connected to those far from me. Just all around connected…as it in fact connects our world. So, much to my surprise, I learned a very cool fact about redwood trees this year. With redwoods you won’t ever see them growing alone, because in order to survive they are a type of tree that needs to be grouped together…in a community so to speak. Even just a small grouping, they are trees that can’t survive alone. Beneath the surface they are all connected by their root system…surviving off of one another. What an incredible picture these massive giants paint, without each other and their resources they would not exist.
