The Wood Wide Web

Postby Sprintcyclist » 18 Jul 2018, 20:42

.............. The trees in a forest seem to stand solitary and silent.

But it turns out that trees are all closely connected, and social.

They can communicate with each other, share resources, and send out signals warning of an incoming threat.

And it all happens through an underground network — the Wood Wide Web. ............

The Wood Wide Web


I wonder what they use for virus protection :roll :roll






jokes aside, it's actually interesting to think that communicate with each other.

I hope that bitch who was running their brothels for them gets raped with a cactus.

All living things communicate.

Trees are happy growing up with other trees and holding hands.
I have spent much time among trees.

Yeah, I will be planting plenty of understory bushes/small trees as well as herbs, flowers, legumes and clover etc around my big trees, cider apple and cherry. I better also plant a black fig plus lemon, peach and plum.

Sounds great. They will all be thrilled to be growing free and wild.

Free and wild apart from some pruning.

Chooks will be running around the trees, scratching for and eating bugs—codlin moth larva etc—and fertilising the orchard.

Maybe a couple ducks too—love duck eggs.

For a while after moving in I might be eating my own veges and eggs from my chooks saving scarce $$$ for painting and finishing. :rofl E.g. having a woodfired bread/pizza oven built.

Will be on FTTH there, can’t wait!

you can buy a kit for about $700 and assemble it yourself. Much cheaper than buying the finished product

Yes, plants talk to each other.
Spend 40 minutes quiet sitting in a forest. They will 'feel' for you.
