  11. 11. Snippet: Redwoods The coast redwoods are among the oldest trees in the world. Their ancestors lived about 165 million years ago, during the Jurassic period. One tree can live for more than 2,000 years, which means there are trees alive today that first sprouted during the Roman Empire. Redwoods have shallow root systems that travel more than one hundred feet from the tree. They help the trees stand, and they need all the help they can get because…they are the tallest living things on the planet.
