Click the image below to see a wonderful Ted Talk given by Forest Ecologist Suzanne Simard. "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 communicate with each other, often and over vast distances. Learn about the harmonious, complex social lives of trees and prepare to see the natural world with new eyes.
For those of us who have grown up in the Pacific NW, hiking into the same forests for years, this is powerful confirmation for the preservation of Old Growth stands and wise harvesting practices. Forest secrets discovered by a woman whose fascination with trees began when she just a child...thanks to her Grandpa and her own ever-curious mind. Thanks, Suzanne!
