Both competitive and facilitative interactions between species play a fundamental role in shaping natural communities. A recent study showed that competitive interactions between plants can be mediated by some alternative signaling channel, extending beyond those channels studied so far (i.e. chemicals, contact and light). Here, we tested whether such alternative pathway also enables facilitative interactions between neighboring plant species. Specifically, we examined whether the presence of a ‘good’ neighboring plant like basil positively influenced the germination of chili seeds when all known signals were blocked. For this purpose, we used a custom-designed experimental set-up that prevented above- and below-ground contact and blocked chemical and light-mediated signals normally exchange by plants

Now I know , talk to you flowers and plant life. Let them know when you're gonna cut the branches,
I have experience with this, these 90 foot aspen trees do not like cars parked under them, they drop the branches on the car
I only had one tree here get hit since then but there is a lot more spider lightning around. Maybe I should get one of these rocks tested, they deflect the compass needle
