Several years ago I read that trees can send signal to
other trees warning them of impending dangers . I do not know what form
they use to send the warnings, danger could have meant pests, disease; I
cannot find the article.
"Some insects are actually attracted to stressed trees by chemical signals
(odors) released into the air by trees in response to stress."
