    • The Hidden Life of Trees: What They Feel, How They Communicate — Discoveries From a Secret World
      • Words
        • Melissa Breyer, Tree Hugger
          • “They can count, learn and remember; nurse sick neighbors; warn each other of danger by sending electrical signals across a fungal network known as the ‘Wood Wide Web’ – and, for reasons unknown, keep the ancient stumps of long-felled companions alive for centuries by feeding them a sugar solution through their roots.”
          • With a mix of scientific research and his own observations – the 51-year old Wohlleben studied forestry and has worked in the forest since 1987 – the man who speaks for the trees does so in decidedly anthropomorphic terms. Which has rankled some German biologists who question his use of language to describe life in the forest.
          • But Wohlleben says this is exactly the point. “I use a very human language. Scientific language removes all the emotion, and people don’t understand it anymore. When I say, ‘Trees suckle their children,’ everyone knows immediately what I mean.”
          • “By artificially spacing out trees, the plantation forests that make up most of Germany’s woods ensure that trees get more sunlight and grow faster,” notes The Times. “But, naturalists say, creating too much space between trees can disconnect them from their networks, stymieing some of their inborn resilience mechanisms.”
          • Trees have feelings.
            They can feel pain, but can also have emotions, such as fear.
            Trees like to stand close together and cuddle.
            There is in fact friendship among trees.

          • “Trees can count, learn and remember, and warn each other of danger by sending electrical signals across a fungal network known as the Wood Wide Web“. According to this theory, root extremities (where plant intelligence is believed to be enclosed) work in close collaboration, creating a large network that extends for dozens of kilometres.
          • These trees are friends,” said the forest ranger to a journalist of The New York Times, pointing at a pair of beeches in the Black Forest, Germany. “You see how the thick branches point away from each other? That’s so they don’t block their buddy’s light. Sometimes, pairs like this are so interconnected at the roots that when one tree dies, the other one dies, too.”
          • Wohlleben aims to provide a new way of considering forests, by re-imagining them, and acknowledging the essential role they play in the cultural consciousness, as they’re currently mainly seen as “organic robots” designed to produce oxygen and timber.
