Lunch & Learn: How Trees Talk to Each Other
This event has passed.
We host a very casual monthly brown bag lunch at the TreeHouse. Each month, we invite a Trees Atlanta staff or crew member, volunteer, or friend to present an interesting environmental topic for discussion. Brown bag Lunch & Learns are typically on the second Thursday of each month.
Have you ever considered that trees can talk to each other? Hidden from our view, intricate underground fungal networks physically connect trees and facilitate inter-tree communication. During this month’s Lunch & Learn we will be viewing and discussing a video presentation by Professor Suzanne Simard, Professor of Forest Ecology at the University of British Columbia, whose research specializes in the complex tree networks under our feet.
