How trees talk to each other

If you watched Avatar, beyond the main story, you were probably amazed by the visual effects of the magical trees and how the natives of the planet were so connected with the nature and animals and maybe imagined how it would be if in reality this connection really existed. Well, fortunately it exists in reality, however it is not that visible as it is in the movie.

Trees do communicate with us and with each other. In this video, PhD professor Suzanne Sommard explains how trees communicate through a complex system and having mother trees as their hubs. These trees exchange nutrients and thus help each other survive. That means the old trees help the younger trees to survive. Just like a family.
