redwood roots persisting 15 years?
Is it possible that I am still ripping up fine (1/16" - 1/8") redwood roots from my rose bed, 15 years after my neighbor finally cut it down and killed the stump? They are like the (horror!) redwood roots I struggled with for years, but smaller; same fine, hairlike roots branching from orange ones. But they are growing 1-3" from the surface, in places I dug up two years ago! can severed redwood roots live that long, and still put out new growth?
