Trees are the silent living creatures on the earth that communicate with each other, but whether they talk to humans is a question in every human mind.
So, go through this complete article to know the interesting communication medium of trees with each other as well as humans.
Do Trees Talk To Each Other?
Basically, trees do not talk to each other as they lack the specific sense organs that humans do. However, one tree can obviously communicate with another.
Some trees, like Acacia, communicate with each other, releasing the chemical called ethylene. When one tree faces problems, the ethylene release warns other trees, causing them to fold their leaves.
The chemical signals also inform other trees about water and mineral availability through roots.
Moreover, the roots in some plants bind with each other, helping them to share information like growing conditions and dangerous situations.
Due to this, some trees even have the ability to grow again even if you trim the whole plant from the lower trunk.
Besides communicating with each other, trees can communicate with lower plants like mycorrhizal fungi. This communication is a symbiotic relationship.
Can Trees Talk To Humans?
Trees do not talk to humans, too, as there is no specific evidence or language. However, they show some behaviors that make us seem they are communicating with humans.
People believe that trees communicate with humans through their leaves by changing their colors. This indicates that the plant is diseased and stressed, needing proper care.
Moreover, when the trees move their branches during the wind, some believe they are happy. Healthy trees with proper care that give sweet fruits are happy, according to some people.
However, these things are just sayings, and there is no scientific evidence about the talking tree. The conditions like changing colors are just reactions to the environment as they are living beings.
But some plants like Mimosa pudica communicate with human touch by folding their leaves. Probably, it’s also a reaction as they react to every touch.
Additionally, there are no trees that talk to humans like in some movies that show trees having facial parts just like a human. Such trees are imaginary characters, just like Pandora Trees.

Douglas Fir: The Talking Tree!
There are some rumors that a tree called Douglas fir makes a sound. Let’s make it clear that the sound is due to the speaker inside the tree decorated during Christmas.
Thus, there are no trees that have the ability to speak. They just communicate with the help of different mediums.
Whether trees communicate with humans is still a question, as there is no relevant scientific evidence.
