I have understood this for some time, and it blows me away....and clears my minds understanding of the connected universe.
My working theory thus far is that the top half acts as a receiver of signals through vibration while the root system communicates through various
methods including vibration and untra sound.
Trees are really more complex in reality than first imagined.
When you count the number of variations and species it's almost staggering.
No matter how you look at it they were some of the first complex life forms and likely some of the last on this ball of minerals and moisture.
Another facete of trees and vegitation in general is thier lack of amenity towards meat creatures in general and quite the opposite.
I have a couple rescue trees in my solarium who were not doing well in the climate of the area. After nursing them back to health by "listening"
close to thier needs they are flourishing , and I would swear are communicating quite loudly.
Sentience doesn't and won't always look like how you expect it.
Nice post OP.
