Plants in the grasslands The trees in the grasslands have thick bark so they can’t burn as easily If the plants get burnt, the roots don’t burn so the plants can re-grow Coneflower can grow up to six feet if it is in moist soil. Trees grow near water. Roots grow near the top of the soil so they can get more water.
