What Has Roots Nobody Sees?

What has roots that nobody sees,
Is taller than trees,
Up, up it goes,
Yet it never grows?

A mountain (from Tolkien)

Ok so i was on a website and saw this riddle and i thought i figured out the answer and then i clicked to see the answer and it said mountains…idk how a mountain has roots that nobody sees, and i looked on a forum and people were arguing between kite and mountain….my thought was an airplane,

It has roots, (route) play on words kind of thing, it has a root thats never seen

It goes up up up and never grows

And its taller than a tree

Just my thought

@Mikem Mountains have roots. Here’s a geological society article about them.
