The Language of Trees

I'm often bemused by the things other people don't know, in this case, the language of trees.  It's one of the things that "civilized" people have forgotten, but forest dwellers know.  

And then there are redwoods.  Redwoods are LOUD.  The forest itself is surprisingly quiet in terms of sound, but the presence and voice of the trees are big.  The sounds they make have an expanse even when they don't have a lot of volume -- although they're capable of volume too, when they feel like it.  And they control everything.  These are creatures who reach up into the sky and wring the clouds like a dishrag.  They're powerful.
