Description

Driving around Tasmania last week and came across large swathes of deforestation with a few stragglers hanging their heads. Got me thinking....
Are trees intelligent? Do they weep? “Roots are the most important part of a tree, and where the equivalent of a brain is located. We know trees can learn and those experiences must be stored somewhere. Mother trees recognise and talk to their kin, shaping future generations. Injured trees pass their legacies onto their neighbours, affecting gene regulation and resilience. Nutrient exchange and helping neighbours in times of need leads to the conclusion that forests are superorganisms with interconnections, much like ant colonies.”
Peter Wohlleban. The Hidden life of trees.
I too believe they are capable of feeling, and weeping blood for Mankind’s unkindness.
