A few people identify trees nearly as lifeless things – green things that hinder. However, a modern research has undermined this view and is demonstrating trees as having ever more noteworthy levels of modernity than previously imagined.
Ever thought of trees having feelings? Emotions? Or the fact that they communicate with each other in a very unusual way? No, right? Well, a recent study has shown that trees are very intelligent and can communicate, feel and give signals to their fellow tree friends.
Yes, just like plants can see, hear, smell and feel, possibilities are, they even have memories – so do trees. It is impossible to believe at a certain point, but research has proved it all.
Here’s what researchers say about it:
“They can feel pain, [and] have emotions, such as fear. Trees like to stand close together and cuddle. They love the company and like to take things slow,” – says Peter Wohlleben, a German researcher.
“There is in fact friendship among trees,” says Wohlleben. “They can form bonds like an old couple, where one looks after the other. Trees have feelings.”
The new documentary, called ‘Intelligent Trees’, is the work of German forester, author Peter Wohlleben, and Suzanne Simard, an ecologist from the University of British Columbia.

It is indeed fascinating and surprising to see such amazing research and the level of hard working these researchers are putting in studying these beautiful, green creations. Who knew their behavior would be similar to that of a human? But the question that arises here is that- are the trees conscious? Do they really think?
There is a still more research that needs to be put into studying the hidden life of trees and we just can’t wait to be enlightened with all the knowledge. Let us know your thoughts on this.
