I'd recommend this book, it explains a few interactions between species of animals / insects / plants and shows how everything is more of less connected in ways we can't imagine

Do you know how far from the tree do these network travel? Do the other trees it 'communicates' with have to be right next to it or can they be some distance?

As someone who has a passing interest in mycology I find this as much interesting in how important fungi is to the world as are trees. It has many proponents who believe fungi doesn't get enough credit for fueling the world's ecology as plants and trees. Possibly due to mushrooms perception as being harmful to humans.

Thanks for the book recommendation (Amazon link https://www.amazon.com/Hidden-Life-Trees-Communicate-Discove...).

I just recently read a great book called The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben [1] that touches on the subject of a social network among trees via a fungal network known as the "Wood Wide Web" [2].
