A LESSON FROM THE TREES
Redwood Trees are among the oldest and largest of trees. Surprisingly their root system is quite shallow for such a large tree. Due to this, they withstand the threatening elements of their environment by growing close to other Redwoods. They intertwine their roots with each other to hold each other up and support each other through powerful winds and floods that would otherwise take them down. Like these trees Amaryllis Counseling believes that individuals can survive and even thrive in the midst of life struggles with positive support and connection.
