Trees grow and change so slowly that it’s hard to tell how busy they really are. Scientists have now discovered that trees in the forest work together. They make friends and support one another. Trees look after their neighbours, and mother trees pass food to their children and older trees within the family group. We also now know that trees have senses. They can smell, taste, touch and feel pain, like we do. Source: The Magic & Mystery of Trees, by Jen Green and Claire McElfatrick.
