“The Lorax might have spoken for the trees, but it turns out that trees can speak for themselves. At least to other trees, that is.While it’s not news that a variety of communication happens between non-human elements of the natural world, the idea of mycelia (the main body of fungi, as opposed to the more well-known fruiting bodies - mushrooms) acting as a sort of old-school planetary internet is still a fairly recent one, and may serve as a spore of a new breed of forestry, ecology, land management.“ ~ Trees talk to each other and recognize their offspring
Trees are communal beings that care for each other. Did you know that even if a tree was chopped down or has lost it’s ability to survive on it’s own, there’s still a good chance it’s alive?
