A tree's roots absorb water and nutrients from the soil, store sugar and anchor the tree upright in the ground. All trees have lateral roots that branch into smaller and smaller roots and usually extend horizontally well beyond the branch tips; large trees typically have roots extending 20-40 metres or more from the trunk. The vast majority of the root system is located in the upper 10–30 cm of soil because the oxygen that roots require to function properly is most abundant there. In waterlogged soil with no oxygen penetration, none of the roots may be deeper than 10 cm. Exceptionally, a few trees in desert areas may have roots that reach down as far as 10 metres. Each root is covered with thousands of root hairs that make it easier to soak up water and dissolved minerals from the soil.N
