1. Watch the video about ‘Intelligent Trees’. 2. After watching, use the the illustration with a few words to describe how the ‘internet of trees’ spreads nutrients and information through the forest community. How do the older trees help young trees and ground cover plants? How do they warn of threats? 3.

Use the to share at least two ideas for how we can better protect and ‘re-wild’ our critical forest habitat.
