How Trees Communicate


Dr. Simmard, who pioneered the theory that trees have a vast underground social life, demonstrates that trees in a forest do not always compete with each other for food, but also cooperate through intelligent communication networks. She shares how she discovered that trees use underground fungal networks to communicate and share resources, uprooting the idea that nature constantly competes for survival. Dr. Simard also stresses the importance of our role within the ecosystem and the importance of giving back as much as we take.
