Timeline Photos. Professor Spends 2 Years Sitting with an Ancient Oak. Like Henry David Thoreau went to the woods, James Canton went to a very old tree.
Specifically, the professor from the University of Essex in the U.K. spent two years sitting with and studying the 800-year-old Honywood Oak in North Essex, England. Canton originally went there to observe the oak, but came away better understanding not just the tree, but also himself. Canton's new book, "The Oak Papers," reflects on what he learned in his time spent with the ancient oak, listening to the natural world.

A massive web of hair-like mushroom roots transmit secret messages between trees, triggering them to share nutrients and water with those in need.
Like humans, trees are extremely social creatures, utterly dependent on each other for their survival. And, as it is with us, communication is key. After scientists discovered pine tree roots could transfer carbon to other pine tree roots in a lab, ecology professor Suzanne Simard set out to figure out how they did it. What she discovered was a vast tangled web of hair-like mushroom roots — an information super highway allowing trees to communicate important messages to other members of their species and related species, such that the forest behaves as “a single organism.”
