Do Trees Talk to Each Other?

There is always music amongst the trees in the garden, but our hearts must be very quiet to hear it. — Minnie Aumonier

~~~~ Fact of the Day: Don’t trees only talk to each other in the movies? Professor Suzanne Simard of the University of British Columbia shares her latest research regarding forest ecosystems: amazingly, trees in a forest coexist in a synergistic web of interconnections, with the largest, oldest, “mother trees” serving as hubs. Because of the old trees linked into the network, the underground exchange of nutrients increases the survival of younger trees — becoming a fascinating, real-life model of forest resilience and regeneration. This short video shares the intriguing science behind forest inter-connectivity.

~~~~ Be The Change: Given your own inter-connections, consider where you get your nourishment and resilience from — and thank one of the sources.
