Can trees talk to themselves?

September 20, 2016

German tree expert Peter Wohlleben has claimed that trees have personalities and can actually talk to each other.

Wohlleben says that trees communicate using their roots and that they form an underground ‘woodwide web’.

However, the German went further and even said that trees can send signals to warn each other if they are attacked by disease and to cut down on water if it’s running low.

He even says that trees can recognise family members, and the ‘mother’ tree knows which little seedlings are its children and can help them grow.

Wohlleben has pointed out that scientists have been doing research into talking trees since the 1970’s.
