Something Ive been looking into!
“Trees living near one another transfer water and nutrients to one another through mycorrhizal networks. The older, more established trees in the network are called hub trees or Mother trees Their roots go deeper into the soil, which means they have access to even more resources to pass to other trees. Research also shows that trees “talk” to each other by sending chemical signals through mycorrhizal networks. They can send and detect distress signals, and send resources to trees in need. “
