How Trees Talk to Each Other

This amazing TED talk is a few years old, but worth a listen. As I do more research into our world for my books, I'm amazed, humbled, and disappointed with how little we respect our beautiful planet and the living beings that inhabit it.

"A forest is much more than what you see," says ecologist Suzanne Simard. Her 30 years of research in Canadian forests have led to an astounding discovery -- trees talk, often and over vast distances. Learn more about the harmonious yet complicated social lives of trees and prepare to see the natural world with new eyes.

Listen for yourself.
