The team from Logs End recently watched a fascinating documentary on the Nature of Things. What Trees Talk About offers a new perspective about trees, going so far as to debunk myths that trees are inactive and solitary beings. Instead, ecologists are proving instead that trees can and do “form unions”.
“Smart and resilient, they share resources, fight animal predators and even change the weather. New research emerging from Canada’s boreal forest shows us that trees’ influence reaches well beyond their world — and into ours.”
If you are located in Canada and can set aside the 40 minutes, it is certainly one visually stunning documentary worth watching.
