HeartMath researchers are currently investigating Phase II of the Tree Research Project: The Global Tree Monitoring Network
In Phase II, scientists will increase the current half-dozen redwood and oak trees being monitored by an additional 20 trees in the forest around the HeartMath Institute Research Center in the Boulder Creek area of Central California. Among these will be weeping willows, Douglas fir, yucca, madrone, and fruit trees such as apple, orange, pear and persimmon.
What We Will Explore
- Do the electrical responses in multiple trees correlate to events that trigger an emotional outpouring in large numbers of people?
- Do trees communicate energetically with each other over large distances?
- Are trees affected by human emotions?
- Does being in the biofields of trees have an uplifting effect on people?
- Can trees help inform us about approaching earthquakes?
Benefits of HMI Tree Research
- Provides a deeper understanding of how people and trees are connected.
- Collects information about how trees respond generally to human emotions and specifically to positive human emotions.
- Gathers important data that may aid in prediction of earthquakes – and saving lives.
- Eventually will establish a global network of tree-monitoring sites and a website† with live data from a redwood grove.
