Can Trees Communicate? Really?? by Linda Salinas

Everyone has their own personal description of nature.  For me, nature is the thought of God placed in time.   Nature has it ‘s own language, which is  silence.   If you listen well,  you will hear what nature has to say.  Do natural organisms speak to each other?  For example, do trees communicate with other trees?  If so, how do they do it and for what purpose?


In this video below,  you will see how trees truly communicate with each other.  WAKE UP EVERYONE!  We have been hearing for years how everything is connected and it is clearly undeniable.   Last week’s blog was titled, “Everything Belongs”.   This week’s blog provides another example of how everything belongs because everything is connected.
brain-tree-headAs my dear friend Charlie Womack said to me, “Linda, you can’t gain on one end without giving up something on the other end”.  My reply to Charlie is,  “Your right, so let’s just let it all be”!

Trees clearly can communicate, but are we listening well enough to hear their message?


Have a great rest of the week and please remember that everything belongs because all life is connected.


Thank you Linda for a wonderful blog.  Everything communicates in it’s own way and everything in nature has it’s own language.  This is what my Method is all about…the natural way to communicate with horses.  My Waterhole Rituals are a way to teach humans how to communicate with their horses in “horse language” so that you are easily understood and will become a true part of the herd and respected as a leader.

Here is a link to my next Introduction to the Waterhole Rituals Clinic here at my Ranch in Escondido, CA

 Here is a look into the classroom:


“Dear Carolyn,

Firstly, I hope you had a wonderful Easter lunch with great company!

I spent the Easter weekend at a hoof trimming clinic, which means I have not had that much time to be with the horses. Upon returning home, Barbie felt more distanced and up-tight compared to before I left. She was covered in bite marks from the other horses. I decided to take it easy and spend time sharing territory, and do very short sessions of LFB and companion walking. Yesterday, Aline came out and we did the carrot game. Barbie actually even got cheeky at a certain moment (which I liked) and great fun was had by all!

This morning, Barbie presented me with a surprise! I always park her in front of the barn and she happily stays there for me to groom her or work on her feet. This morning, I had to check something two horse lengths away from her and instead of staying put, she came over to check out what I was doing. I let her do it, because normally, she is too afraid to go explore, especially when it’s away from the barn and the paddock. I have done one session with her to practice walking down the driveway, but she got too nervous when the other horses started calling her, so I decided back then (two weeks ago or so) that she was not ready. This morning however, she must have decided she was ready! Once she realized I was willing to go along with her initiative, she looked very determined and headed for the driveway. Just like that. I let her walk as far as she wanted. She went down the driveway, stopped to look at the world going by (we live on a very busy road), answered a whinny by my other mare and headed to the left onto the cycle path. I let her go as far as the neighbor’s house and then took her home again, just to be safe. But she wanted more, so off we went again, down the driveway and I decided to go to the right this time, to munch on some grass. Then I took her home again. She wanted to go some more so I took her to the grass again. She was hardly eating. She was taking in The World and she looked SO full of life!!! Not scared, just ALIVE! That changed when she discovered the donkeys on the other side of the road. It changed her energy completely. Head and tail went up and she became prancy. It was comforting to feel that she was still willing to follow my lead, but it was a good cue that we had to go home, which we did. I put her back in the paddock and she stood at the gate for a while, body squared, head up, eyes wide and bright, basically just looking PROUD and PRESENT. There was an awesome energy about her that I have not felt before.

Carolyn, the change in this horse has been so amazing! She is opening up like a rose and it’s a beautiful process to be part of. There is an energy about her that I can’t describe. It’s strong and soft at the same time.

Have a great weekend!  Be on the lookout for new horse and human sightings and may the horse be with you.

Warmly, Carolyn

Share the love!

Dear Linda and Carolyn … thank you for the connection. Kx

This was lovely! When I lived in NC for 10 yrs. the plant communities and trees absorbed me into their world! I witnessed things that were magical! In the beginning I marveled at all the plant species and unfolding of greens! Being from the treeless desert in NM you can imagine I was swimming in an ocean of woodland plants & animals. After three years I noticed that every time I wished I had a certain flower growing in my patio the next spring it would pop up! Seriously. I began to see that my love of the plants created “something” for them to respond to to me personally! Truly amazing! The great thing is that it is still happening here in NM although on a smaller scale. Just this spring I have seen several volunteers that have mysteriously migrated from the far end of the pasture to the front edge on my bedroom window! There are no other plants like this in the entire neighborhood so I have been worrying they will die off one year.But here they are every morning greeting me when I awaken! Three of my favorite authors on the subject are : Steven Herrod Buhner-“The Secret Teachings of Plants”,Elliot Ciwen “Plant Spirit Medicine” and Johan Wolfgang Goethe’s “Archetypal Plant” as translated by Rudolf Steiner. I found these writings well after i started having these experiences! Thank you again Linda and wish we lived closer!

Wow – of course they communicate. As a child I always believed that however, since it is so subtle it was harder to understand the “how” as an adult hence the belief was lost in rational thinking. This film shows that just because we can’t see it or understand it scientifically, it does not mean communication does not happen. I hope I will become better at believing in my instinctive feelings about nature and horses. I believe we could all benefit from literally “getting back to our roots”. So happy that you and Linda share this amazing stories that continues to send me into awe.

Warmly, Kira

Dear Carolyn and Linda,
im smiling and my cells are dancing! Can you see and feel it? 🙂
I thought the movie Avatar (my favorite movie) really well explain and visualize that wisdom, connection network, coexistence, love and power.
Thank you Carolyn for creating circomptances where i can experience all of that. Making situation so “conciousness and wisdom can make their way the way i can feel them and KNOW “. It cannot be teach, it can only be experience and assimilate from inside, it is very personal, it s like “intimacy bucket” with what is all around and inside me.
Lot of love, hugs and kisses!
Viviane, Billy and Lever

    There is a serie of book too, “Anastasia” from Vladimir Megre about that kind of topic.

Dear Carolyn and Linda,

science is slowly catching up with things we’ve always known. In this day and age it is quite easy to loose our connection to nature and ourselves. I grew up in close communication with my Power Animals and Power Plants and trusted my intuition to such a great extend, I rarely sought advice. Thanks to you and your WHR and all that came with it, like all my friends at NING and the wonderful discussions there, I’m now slowly opening up to Animal Communication and reading the messages I get from nature. I’m learning to still my body and mind and be receptive again.

Tim Walking Bear Goodblood “The Plant Whisperer” came up after I watched the video in Linda’s blog:

And thanks for sharing Desiree’s letter. I love it!

Thank you both for a lovely blog!

it is wonderful to sit of the foot of a tree, leaning your back against it and listen to what it has to say to you!

I have had a wonderful eastern with all four children being home.
Yesterday and today i did the bucket game with both Ameri Kahn and Zaritsa. They stood polite waitng for their turn to put the head in the bucket.

The spring is here, the sun is shining, the days are longer, the nights brighter, the nature is soon dressing in a fresh green colour. I just love it!!!

Thank you Carolyn for this blog! I really love nature and did so already as a child; I could almost cry of happiness seeing the first snowdrop for the year… The video reminded me of the series “the private life of plants” of David Attenborough, which was on tv a couple of years ago and which I enjoyed thoroughly.
I also want to thank you for your wise lessons on how to enjoy just being and seeing things happen the way they do instead of hunting for ‘goals’. I can now see how my new path with my horses brings me back to those feelings of hapiness in my childhood!

Nature is always screaming us and we don´t hear anything. We learn how to use things on demand and how to abuse it, ignoring nature´s needs and feelings. Sadly we also do it with each other. One day the nature will put us where we deserve.

Thank you, Linda and Carolyn, for this excellent piece. I’m sharing it on my facebook page so that more people may become aware of how connected we all are. Some folks can’t “feel” it and a video like this one is helpful so that they can grasp it intellectually first.

This is a topic very close to my heart, and SO important to share.

Thanks for all you do–both of you!

    Hi Kay,

    Thank you so much for sharing this on your FB page. It’s so true, we are all connected. I feel connected with you just from Carolyn’s blog. Like you, I feel so connected to trees and when I see them cut down unnecessarily, I feel an odd sadness in my heart. Thank you for your kind words.

THANKS Linda and Carolyn

I loved the video. Reminded me of the movie Avatar..which I just watched with a grade 9 class at school this week. In it there is the tree of souls, connected to their deity. Beautiful story. The native peoples and the animals knew nature is sacred and alive and connected. We forgot that through our evolution. Many are awakening to nature and our intuition again. I love spending time on my property with the lovely knarled oak trees and the whispering aspens. I have my favourites I love touching, sitting against and hugging. They are like family!

Thanks for sharing, I will visualize that synergistic connection when I am out there now.

    Hi Barb,

    We think alike and we feel alike too. Sounds like we are very fortunate to have trees on our property that we can feel a special attraction to. When we moved to our property, there was a lovely oak tree. It began suffering suddenly and we called a tree company to advise us. They recommended a lot of things to do for the tree which we did to try and save it, but unfortunately it died. It bothered me so much I haven’t had the tree taken down yet and as the spring foliage has blossomed on every tree but the oak, I know it is time to take it down. My feelings for the tree have surprised me. Only a tree lover can relate.
    Thank you for your comment.

Hello Linda and Carolyn,
Thank you for this wonderful blog. I spend a lot of time in the woods and feel/know this to be true. The video helped me to understand the connection that I have sensed for a long time.

    Dear Wendy,
    Loving nature has it’s rewards. When I am present to my love of nature I feel my body renewing. My greatest joy is connection with nature and horses, and I new get tired of it.
    Thank you for your response.


    linda j salinas - a couple of years ago Reply

    Thank you Wendy. I am glad you felt a sense of affirmation in your knowledge of trees from the video. As I said in the blog, nature for me is the thought of God placed in time. Nature is my church. I, like you like to visit as much as I can.

Wow!! Nature is just incredible! Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful and informative video and blog. I love trees even more than I already did(which was quite a lot!). It makes me so happy that there are humans like this lady in the world who are dedicating so much of their lives to learning about the important things in this world, like the trees social networks! We need more conscious people like her.

And the experience that you have written of Desiree is so precious and speaks volumes of the importance of The Waterhole Rituals. We are all so lucky to have discovered Carolyn, thank you so much Carolyn!!
