How Long Can Trees Live?
Some of the trees can live very long, much longer than any animal and human being on the earth. The California Big Trees are a kind of sequoia tree growing in the Sequoia National Park in California. Some of these huge trees can grow up to a height of 270 feet. They are very wide and heavy. The biggest of these trees is almost 26 feet wide.
Trees are the most important part of our environment. But too many of them are always being cut down by man which is spoiling our climate and the air we breathe. If you plant trees and allow them to grow they can live very long to protect ours. Some of the Big trees growing in parts of California are probably thousands of years old, according to scientists!
