Trees Have a “Heartbeat,” Scientists Discover – Healthy Holistic Living
We know that trees are alive because they use energy to create their own energy. Even though they lack the organs that creatures like mammals have, trees still have their own set of unique organs.
The Secret Rhythm Of Trees
Have you ever wondered if it is possible for a tree to have a heartbeat? A tree may not have a heart, but the concept of it having its own beat and rhythm is not as far-fetched as you may think! According to a new study, trees have a special type of beat in their bodies similar to that of a heartbeat.
The study was headed by András Zlinszky, Bence Molnár and Anders S. Barfod from Hungary and Denmark. They used advanced monitoring techniques known as “terrestrial laser scanning” to survey the movement of twenty-two different types of trees. The investigation on trees revealed that while trees sleep at night they routinely have beats pulsate throughout their body.
