Mother Tree

Mother Tree

This is the closest I can get so far to visually capture the essence of Mother Tree: in recent scientific research, it has been found that young seedlings in a forest setting are nurtured by their larger and more mature counterparts, with the help of microscopic fungi.

For a beautiful description of this process, watch this video, narrated by Dr Suzanne Simard, one of the most prominent researchers involved in tree root communication.
