Palm, Pine, or Maple, it always is true – half of the tree will be hidden from you! Learn about the importance of roots by listening to a reading of What Do Roots Do? by Kathleen V. Kudlinski as a part of Earth Month in McKinley Park. Look closely at the roots of plants, then plant your own seed to take home.
