New Ancient Redwoods? How’s That Possible?

New Ancient Redwoods? How’s That Possible?

One of California’s trademark sights are redwood trees. These spectacular trees are primarily found along the Northern California coast. Redwoods are some of the tallest and oldest trees on earth. With some standing taller than a 32-story building, these trees are a breathtaking sight to behold, and become even more wondrous when you realize how old some of them are.

Due to how long it takes for them to grow, redwood forests are in danger. Forests of redwoods cannot recover as quickly as damage may be done to them. This is why many of these forests within California are protected. Soon enough, a new region of redwood forests will be opened to the public as a protected park for the trees.

You may be asking yourself: If it takes so long for these trees to grow, how is there going to be a...

Due to these facts, a child should never be left unattended in a car when temperatures approach 70 degrees. If they are left alone in a car in warm conditions, they could face serious bodily harm or worse.

Even at a comfortable temperature like 75 degrees, the inside of a car can become unbearable...
