    TREES TRANSMIT ELECTROMAGNETIC SIGNALS
    BY SUHAIL JALBOUT

    I was requested by a colleague to illuminate the garden of his house. According to the electrical drawings, two projectors were required to illuminate a large pine tree over 100 years old. One projector was located above the stem of the tree and the other at its mid-height, both pointing upwards. A gardener passed during the installation of the electrical cable on the pine tree. He informed the electricians that the electrical current in the cable will cause the death of the tree. The electricians, after consulting with me, removed the cable. The tree was lighted by a projector installed on the ground pointed upwards.

    I searched the net for any relevant information but without results. I called the Agriculture School of one of the Universities in town to have any feedback on the subject. Unfortunately, they did not have any proven data about this phenomenon. So I asked another experienced gardener if he had witnessed the death of trees due to electrical currents. His reply was affirmative. Finally, I asked the Director of the Physical Plant at one major University in town whether such incidents happened on campus because few trees are illuminated during special yearly festivals. He confirmed the death of one small cedar tree.

    Why the electrical current in cables installed on trees cause their death? The most logical explanation is the following:

    Electrical currents produce electromagnetic fields. The strength of the electromagnetic field traps or changes the direction of motion of the nutrients that are flowing from the roots to the branches of the tree. In other words, the electromagnetic field prevents the nutrients from reaching their pre-scheduled destination thus disrupting the normal nutrition process of the tree. Once the natural nutrition equilibrium is altered, the tree starve and dies.

    Conclusions:

    1. Trees should have an electrical potential (voltage).

    2. Most probably the impact of the electromagnetic field on trees during the spring/summer seasons is much more effective than during the autumn/winter seasons.

    3. The impact of the electromagnetic field of 220V/50Hz or 120V/60Hz high wattage lighting circuits on trees is more drastic than the 12V or 24V/50-60Hz low wattage lighting circuits.

    To prove the 1st point, I decided to drill a 2mm hole in the stem of a tree and measure the voltage between the hole and ground by means of a milli-voltmeter. Before proceeding, I searched the net to investigate whether this experiment was performed. To my surprise, I found out that this experiment was done by scientists.{1} They proved that trees have a potential differential, in milli-volts, between the stem/branches and the ground. As a result, the following are few conclusions:

    1. The potential differential between ground and the stem of a tree produces a flow of electric current. The electric current in turn produces an electromagnetic field. This implies that every tree transmits electromagnetic signals. I tend to believe that the transmitted signal from different trees have a specific pattern of woven frequencies. This is due to the composition and the concentration of their charged nutrients that flow from the roots to the branches. If it is possible to record the minute transmitted patterns, this data can be used to identify the type of each tree.

    2. The electromagnetic field that is produced by the current flowing in electrical cables installed on trees will definitely disrupt the flow of current within the trees resulting in their death.

    3. We can understand now why people love to spend their free time in parks and in forests. The transmitted electromagnetic patterns from trees somehow resonate with the bio-electrical circuitry of the human brain giving them the feeling of happiness, tranquility, relaxation, peace of mind, and harmony with nature.

    4. It seems the bio-electromagnetic signals that are transmitted from human beings also have effects on plants. There are many people who have “green hands” and others that have an “evil eye”. The bio-electromagnetic signals that are transmitted from the “green hands” people are received favorably by plants thus increasing the nutrition process leading to their fast growth. However, the signals that are transmitted from the “evil eye” people disrupt the flow of the electrical currents of the nutrition process resulting in the death of plants.

    this is some of the best bullshit I've read in a while, but bullshit it still is.

    One of the many emails that I have received in support of my hypothesis is from the vice president of the American University of Beirut (AUB). He wrote: “Very interesting observation, I have read a book once and its title I believe is "Talk to Your Plants". It proves that one can communicate with his plants but they did not explain how. Your theory makes sense. When at AUB I noticed that pine trees at Marquand House [located on campus] had a network of electric wires and lights that were used during receptions or occasions. The trees were not healthy and two of them withered away; one fell on the president's garage. I removed all the wires when the garden was renovated but without associating the cause and effect and I believe the garden is doing well now. Best regards, George”

    To protect trees from the effects of electrical currents, please try to use low voltage low wattage illuminating circuits. Thank you.

    I have received a very interesting email from a commercial airline pilot. He wrote: “the house that we purchased in Nice, France, about 30 years ago had no trees in the garden. My wife planted one lemon tree and nursed it on daily basis. The tree grew at a fast rate and gave loads of lemon every year. Eleven years ago, my wife was diagnosed with cancer. Shortly afterwards the tree stopped giving fruit. We consulted with experts and applied their recommendations but the tree did not respond. My wife suffered for 10 years and then passed away. One year after her death, the tree started to flower and produce loads of lemon almost the same quantity as it was producing 11 years ago. Thanks for your hypothesis which allowed me to understand this very strange phenomenon.”

    It's amazing how the human mind finds patterns even when none exist, and how we ascribe special meaning to arbitrary, regular, mundane events and coincidences.
