A forester and scientist have been studying communication between trees for decades; their incredible observations can be seen in the new documentary, ‘Intelligent Trees.’
‘Trees can form bonds like an old couple and look after each other. ‘
‘Trees have feelings. They can feel pain, but can also have emotions, such as fear.’
‘Trees like to stand close together and cuddle.’
‘There is in fact friendship among trees.’
