Now to the point, finally I searched all over the internet and couldn't find the answer. Are there more people that can communicate with trees/plants? Do they have certain knowledge/techniques which I could use to understand this phenomena better? In short...I'd like to gain as much information about this as possible.
one day I forgot to give it water it started shouting at me "Hey you forgot to give me water" and when I finally gave it water it said "I'm drowning". Geez they're like women, don't know what they want

Participation is rooted in communication. If we cannot communicate with the creatures and powers of the more-than-human world, how can we begin to participate with them? This piece suggests we may merely have forgotten the "language of the trees", and with practice can return to our birthright of full participation with the cosmos.
Pepere taught me to talk to the trees. Well, not talk so much as listen. We'd enter the woods as we would a sacred place; he modelled far more reverence for a growing forest than he ever showed the inside of a church. "Be quiet now," he'd say, "see if you can hear the trees talkin' to one another." Perhaps it was just a ploy to get three rambunctious under ten's to be quiet, but I don't think so. I learned a way of being in the woods by watching him, walking with him.
As for communicating with plants, I don't know. Even if I knew how, I think I'd feel a little silly trying.
Talkin with trees......Ya, uh huh, sure.....whatever. I think you've been spending too much time in the great outdoors. So if you chop down a tree, is that considered racist?
