    Ratszinger Thank you, you understand completely! And yes the bamboo is very spiritual, loving and giving. We had one and she was dying from neglect but she not only recovered but grew tall and full and so beautiful. Our wild turkeys loved her and every rainfall they gathered in a circle around her and put their heads toward her. It kept their heads dry.
    Our beloved Broken Mouth a turkey hen we loved and took care of after she came to us with a broken lower bill, we buried her near the bamboo because it’s where Broken mouth went to sleep one last time by the bamboo bush, her neck tucked under arm.
    I love all living beings, green or otherwise. But at our last place I got to know madrones, maple, oak, vanilla pine(sugar pine), dogwood, birch, forsythia, cherry, apple, plum, nectarine, a cedar mom and her son, a beautiful holly tree, and many others. They’re all loving, they’re all special in their own way and they love life, they love birds....and squirrels.
    Even poison oak has its place, we found out how the deer love to eat poison oak when it’s still young they love the young leaves and they strip them bare.
    In reviving them all from years of neglect, so much wild life moved in. They brought so much joy and taught me so much about them, I am very thankful and grateful for it all.
    It is sad that our surrounding neighbors changed and new ones moved in and as each new neighbor moved in, tree cutting began, fences went up as dogs moved in and had to be kept in, so our wild life especially our beloved deer moved away. As much as we wanted the deer to go back to the mountains and stay safe we missed them. We missed the turkeys, I miss their cries, I loved them roosting in our tall pines, 60 to 100 foot tall which kept the turkeys safe from the coyotes at night. I loved the pitter patter of their feet when they’d run across our roof. And they always heard the thunder before we could hear it. The males would google back at each thunder clap and when it gets close they panic and run away. Some would find their way back a day or so later and it would always take a hen to go find and bring the rest back.

    I remembered reading this fascinating article in the Smithsonian a couple of years ago. I had no idea that trees communicate nor did I know that they feed and help each other if one is injured. Trees are far more alert, social, sophisticated—and even intelligent—than we thought. This is just a small bit of a much longer article. The link is at the bottom.

    Do Trees Talk to Each Other?

    I'm walking in the Eifel Mountains in western Germany, through cathedral-like groves of oak and beech, and there’s a strange unmoored feeling of entering a fairy tale. The trees have become vibrantly alive and charged with wonder. They’re communicating with one another, for starters. They’re involved in tremendous struggles and death-defying dramas. To reach enormousness, they depend on a complicated web of relationships, alliances and kinship networks.



    Wise old mother trees feed their saplings with liquid sugar and warn the neighbors when danger approaches. Reckless youngsters take foolhardy risks with leaf-shedding, light-chasing and excessive drinking, and usually pay with their lives. Crown princes wait for the old monarchs to fall, so they can take their place in the full glory of sunlight. It’s all happening in the ultra-slow motion that is tree time, so that what we see is a freeze-frame of the action.


    Wohlleben sees a forest as a superorganism of unique individuals. A single beech tree can live for 400 years and produce 1.8 million beechnuts. (Diàna Markosian)

    My guide here is a kind of tree whisperer. Peter Wohlleben, a German forester and author, has a rare understanding of the inner life of trees, and is able to describe it in accessible, evocative language. He stands very tall and straight, like the trees he most admires, and on this cold, clear morning, the blue of his eyes precisely matches the blue of the sky. Wohlleben has devoted his life to the study and care of trees. He manages this forest as a nature reserve, and lives with his wife, Miriam, in a rustic cabin near the remote village of Hümmel.

    Now, at the age of 53, he has become an unlikely publishing sensation. His book The Hidden Life of Trees: What They Feel, How They Communicate, written at his wife’s insistence, sold more than 800,000 copies in Germany, and has now hit the best-seller lists in 11 other countries, including the United States and Canada. (Wohlleben has turned his attention to other living things as well, in his Inner Life of Animals, newly issued in translation.)

    A revolution has been taking place in the scientific understanding of trees, and Wohlleben is the first writer to convey its amazements to a general audience. The latest scientific studies, conducted at well-respected universities in Germany and around the world, confirm what he has long suspected from close observation in this forest: Trees are far more alert, social, sophisticated—and even intelligent—than we thought.

    I just want to thank everyone here for welcoming me and sharing their insights and love. I would love to answer each and everyone of you but I am short on time so I hope this greeting will convey how much I appreciate you all. Thank you!
    I have always felt that all living beings are sacred. Trees have always held a special place in my heart. And every plant I grow and take care of I nurture from my heart.
    I am getting acquainted with the trees at our current home now. They need nurturing and I see them already changing for the better in the few months that we’ve been in this house. Amazing how a bird feeder brings not only birds and a few squirrels but it really perks up the trees. I’m happy to see a woodpecker and a sapsucker coming and cleaning the boughs and trunks.
    It is all an adventure and lessons...
    Goodwill to you all

    There is a welsh mountain that is well known for dimensional experiences, portals and crystal and tree Beings. Those that are aware of it on its deeper levels walk up it and are gripped with a deep silence and awe. It is best to walk up there with deep awareness as there is a Being that challenges all who want to enter the woodland and all who want to clamber its rocky, crystal laden surfaces. This Being stands sentinel on the way up and is hugely tall and extremely stern and demands conscious awareness and connection to the trees and crystals and all that is nature from its visitors.

    There are many who tumble and sprain ankles or get cut and bruised clambering about when they go there unaware. Others, more tuned in often get rewarded with a beautiful crystal found by casually flipping a rock.

    In Autumn it is a wonderland of funghi. Magical fairy rings circling the bases of trees and weaving patterns over mossy leaf laden undulations. There is always incredible energy.

    At anytime those sitting on its rocky surface meditating can wander in and out of countless dimensions and meet with nature sprites and fairies. Some meet with dragons.

    On the way back down the Sentinel Being stands there across the path and if you are aware you are in awe and wonder and thankfulness. The communication from heart to heart resonates and grows as all the Beings amplify this energy and a haze of pure light glows amongst the trees.

    Those that have no interest in the deeper realms miss all of it.

    Why your immune system needs a forest
    https://www.naturalintelligence.info...needs-a-forest


    "For millions of years, the immune system of our ancestors coevolved with its environment. There are gazillions of viruses, bacteria and other microorganisms out and about to which living beings are being exposed to on a daily basis. Some are beneficial and some harmful, so life learned to collaborate with the benign ones (there are more non-human cells in your body than human cells) and to defend itself to the harmful ones (the immune system of healthy living organisms is still the most sophisticated security system in the world). Because of the process of coevolution, life learned to immunize itself to infectious diseases and the immune system of the forest dwellers evolved in concert with the immune system of the forest.

    Even though we have reduced most of the forests of the world to charcoal, toilet paper, building material and dust, the remaining forests still offer us an incredible immune boost. Nearly 1,000 scientific studies “point in one direction: Nature is not only nice to have, but it’s a have-to-have for physical health and cognitive function,” according to the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies.

    For instance, studies with students and elderly show that spending time in nature significantly reduces inflammation. Additionally, research from the Nippon Medical School in Japan shows that time spent in forests increases the number of natural killer cells, which promote our immune defense, while expanding the functional activity of these antiviral cells. What is more, the research also showed that forest visits increase the amount of intracellular anticancer proteins and this effect lasted for a full week after the trip. None of these effects were observed after city trips.

    Other studies show that natural aromas secreted by evergreen trees, known as phytoncide, are associated with improvements in the activity of human frontline immune defenders. Nature’s health benefits are thus wide-ranging and strong associations between access to nature and longer, healthier lives are increasingly revealed by science. A study in Environmental Health Perspectives of 2016 for example, found a 12% lower mortality rate in people that live in close proximity to nature, even after correcting for socio-demographic background and smoking habits, with the biggest improvements related to reduced risk of death from cancer, lung disease or kidney disease.

    So, your immune system needs a forest. A healthy wild forest, not a sterile park or plantation. These times of lock-down due to the COVID-19 outbreak where many activities get canceled, are the perfect time to reflect on what we can do to improve our immune system. Every city its own urban forest would be a great start. Because nature is better for our health than the health care system.

    Here are some references on the interdependence of nature and health:

    Your post reminded me of my own personal connection with a woodland that used to be near where I grew up in Chester U.K - this part of England is very ancient, it holds many stories dating back before the Romans came, it was a wild, rich place filled with spirit.
    The Romans established Chester to enable them to operate in the north west, keep the Welsh at bay, and transport lead and other goods from the River Dee, which used to be a major waterway before it silted up and became too difficult.
    Anyway, the estate where our house was built had been a forest, and agricultural lands, and a fragment of that forest remained; with ancient Oak trees, and Ash, Sycamore. This parcel of forest used to call me, I was drawn to it, I dreamed my way around it in summer, being transported, it felt timeless, sacred, also very sad because there was a deep awareness of encroaching society and people who regarded the woods as being land for building. your post reminded me of long summer afternoons, among the shaded paths in those woods, long ago and far away.

    Are you familiar with Ralph Ellis research? He’s written many books detailing how Jesus didn’t die on the cross, he was exiled to the farthest part of the Roman Empire, which was Chester at the time. Fascinating theory backed up with lots of evidence. Certainly adds an extra layer to Chesters heritage and mystique.

    Hi Savannah,
    I apologize that I’ve taken so long to reply, but I was really overwhelmed with all the positive responses to this thread, I couldn’t, didn’t know where to start.
    I know what you mean and feel the same way about hearing trees being cut, I mourn them and when I hear cutting I say a quick prayer for the tree to ease its pain in transition and to ease the pain for his/ her relatives.
    I am sure your spruce knows how much you love it and that you want her healed. But ultimately they still make up their own mind.
    When my husband and I moved to Paradise California, the property had been abandoned and the garden was dried bushes and dying trees. One such tree was a tulip tree. I had never met one before and it was very tall, but all the branches were dead except for three. Those still had some green. We started watering the garden every day religiously and my husband cleared dead bushes and twigs and leaves, fixed sprinklers and little by little the yard turned green. The tulip tree the leaves grew bigger as we both paid it attention, I’d talk to it or hum a tune and tell her how beautiful she is that I can see how gorgeous she was when all her branches were alive. I put veggie scraps, uneaten fruits, banana peel, crushed egg shells,from the kitchen and sprinkle everything under the trees and bushes. Not eaten, they go back to Mother Earth. (We also sprinkle manure under the trees and bushes every spring). In time we started seeing earthworms especially after it rained a lot of them come to the surface. The robins love those when they arrive in spring.
    The tulip tree hung on and all the other trees that didn’t die by next spring they flowered profusely and much to our surprise the tulip tree made flowers on all three branches, they are so pretty yellow with an orange center. I had never seen that before. I thanked her so much for letting me see her flowers, lots of tree hugs. My husband was happy too and funny thing we started seeing “eyes” on the tree trunks, not just the tulip tree but the other trees as well. We didn’t know we had seen the eyes till one of us mentioned it to the other.
    Sadly the tulip tree left/died a year later but we were grateful that she had let us see her beauty before she moved on. She in turn let us really see her because that’s all she wanted, that we loved and acknowledged her presence. I think I read later somewhere that tulip trees are quite rare these days so I felt honored to have met one. I will never forget her.
    So treasure the time you have with your beautiful spruce, that’s what really precious and we are the lucky ones for having had such experience.

    Last year one of our trees was late in coming to bud and my partner thought it might be dead, so I asked it if it was going to wake up, and Fred the tree said 'yes'. Fred is its name because it just is. Fred compels people to hug its trunk. This happens with people and even my cat who likes to climb that specific tree even though there are no branches within any reasonable distance for the cat to make it on.

    Anyway, Fred budded and lived another year. I don't think Fred will make it for much longer, but Fred's not dead yet. We'll see if Fred comes in this year again... still slow. I don't know if all trees talk but Fred is old and wise and friendly.
    May the Force be with you.

    Glad to hear Fred is around for another season, please give him a hug from me.

    After the big freeze here I went out daily and hugged my trees and told them it would be okay. Several that I was sure were not going to make it have come back. I love sitting outside in the evening and listening to them talk.

    I shall send your love to Fred next time I pass him by to put out the compost. :D

    He survived the great Treepocalypse of 2019! That October storm did a number on Winnipeg's trees!

    That was a very scary event. I was concerned not just for the people but Texas's wildlife too, as it was simply an unprecedented weather event, and nothing would be prepared. I'm glad to hear that many of your trees that you thought had died made it through the freeze.
    May the Force be with you.

    I'm listening to the work of Jason Singh on the BBC six music Cerys Matthews show (16/5/)

    He's been working with Kew Gardens to create an Audio installation translating the electric fields generated by plants within the gardens into sound. He doesn't add any notes, just uses the electric readings to generate midi notes which he then attaches to a synthesiser.

    He's played a series of wonderful soundscapes taken from different plants and trees. Should be available to listen online for next 30 days. Bbc sounds should allow you to select the relevant section.

    Or alternatively at Kew Gardens if you can make it there.

    Highly recommended and seemed to fit in nicely with this inspiring thread. I'm not lucky enough to sense the trees in the way some of you can, but everyone could listen to Jason's recordings.

    Journeyman, I look forward to listening to the plants and trees. Your post reminded me of the "Choir of Crickets".

    "Choir of Crickets"
    Created by Jim Wilson, this enchanting recording contains two tracks: the natural sounds of chirping crickets, and the crickets played several octaves lower.

    Though it may sound like a synthesizer or a chorus singing; it's the crickets themselves slowed way down, creating the effect of a choir of human voices. The sound created is a simple diatonic 7-note scale chord progression and melody with a multi-layered structure.

    (continued below)
    The recording can be played continuously in the background to create a natural soothing atmosphere for peace, serenity, and healing direct from Mother Nature.

    The current version is an extended digitally remixed and mastered version taken from the original recording entitled "Ballad of the Twisted Hair" from the album "Medicine Songs" by David Carson and Little Wolf Band produced by Jim Wilson and released on Raven Records. © Jim Wilson & David Carson, God's Cricket Chorus 1992

    Fantstic, there's something very evocative to me in the sound of crickets...
