Redwood trees are among some of the most majestic trees. They grow to be over 300 feet tall and can live thousands of years and their wood has special properties that make it resistant to mold, insects, and rot.
Despite growing so tall, they have relatively shallow roots – around 6 to 12 feet deep. This root system could not hold up the tree by itself if it were not for a unique interaction between the trees. Redwoods get their stability and strength from growing up together with other redwoods in groves, and then intertwining their roots. In essence, they hold onto each other, and this enables them to grow incredibly tall, strong, and live long lives. This symbolizes what we do at Redwood Family Therapy. We help families and couples hold on to each other, and metaphorically link arms with individuals to help strengthen them through the storms.
