I heard a Ted Talk from ecologist Suzanne Simard about how trees “talked to each”by communicating their needs and send each other nutrients via a network of latticed fungi buried in the soil. (For more about this visit https://www.ted.com/talks/suzanne_simard_how_trees_talk_to_each_other/transcript?language=en. ) I have always wondered how a tree senses its surroundings and suspected they were communicating and, along with animals, had a kind of knowledge that we did not understand.

    Tree have a palpable sense of energy or being. They are wise and knowing because they have super long lives and occupy both underground space and the space well above our heads. Plus they can’t move so they have a very long time to map and decipher their environment.
