Mother Tree

“Mother trees are the biggest and oldest trees in the forest. They act as central communication hubs for vast below ground mycorrhizal networks which link the trees so they can communicate and send resources back and forth. These important trees support the young trees by ferrying them carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus, water, even defense signals. They are said to increase seedling survival by four times. If too many mother trees are cut down, the entire system of hundreds of trees can collapse.” – Zom
