This week on Podparks, we are analyzing the magic of trees, and why they have become so crucial in our lives.
And as recent research suggests, trees are intricately connected to each other and to other organisms through mycorrhizal networks also known as the wood wide web. Throw a web of fungi that attach to tree roots, trees send water and nutrients to each other, as well as distress signals that prepare their communities for eventualities. This connection extends to humans, and as Tim explains, the mere presence of trees in our surroundings can have lasting effects on our physical and mental health.
