Six year study proves wireless kills trees?
Germany Created: 13 Oct 2017
Wireless Kills Trees - A six-year study of trees around wireless cell towers reveals the 'invisible' damage of exposure to RF radiation. Radiation from wireless technology is now jeopardizing the health of our trees and other plants. "Tree damage in the vicinity of mobile phone base stations" by Waldmann-Selsam and Egar in 2013, documented suspected RF radiation related tree damage and RF radiation readings over a period of six years.
It found significantly higher RF radiation readings by damaged trees as compared to undamaged trees. Sometimes damaged areas and undamaged areas were on the same tree, in which case RF radiation levels were found to be higher near the damaged areas. Because trees are unable to move, differences in RF radiation levels from fixed sources like cell towers can result in very different RF radiation exposure micro-environments in different parts of the same tree or bush.

Researchers state "More recently, it has been shown that mortality rates of all dominant tree species in the western United States have been doubling every 17-29 years in old growth forests, and that recruitment of new trees is now occurring at a lower rate than mortality." The aspen experiment combined with other measurement and observational studies make a compelling case that our addiction to wireless technology is killing the trees we need so much for life far faster than they can replace themselves.

In the Netherlands, because of the increased use if Wi-Fi over the last few years, a whopping 70% of urban trees are suffering from radiation poisoning, up from only 10% five years ago.


Most people don't really stop to consider how their cell phone or other wireless devices work. They're just "magic" and "neat" and "convenient." If they do think about it, common perception includes these erroneous assumptions: direct communication from device to base station similar to an invisible wire or a homogeneous RF field put out by devices and towers.

Neither of these are true.

The RF fields put out by both devices and towers are not exclusively direct from device to tower. Nor are the RF fields homogeneous. There are areas of high RF concentration immediately adjacent to areas that are much lower. The exact nature of the fields depends on the transmitter configuration and use at the time. Hence, when you make a call on a cell phone or download a video on WiFi, the RF radiation (specifically, microwave radiation) used by the wireless devices goes through you and everyone around you. Which person, tree, or other creature is exposed to the most RF radiation will depend on the device, your surroundings, and the base station transmitter location. Trees cannot move when they start to "feel bad" and show signs of damage.

Tree give us oxygen and clear our air. Their health is declining visibly due to exposure.

What about the impact on human health?

These towers are being placed at schools, shopping malls, and near neighborhoods. The federal government has given cell phone companies exemption from all local ordinances as long as they can prove there is a gap in coverage. This means that even if NOBODY in the area wants it installed, they are still able to install it, and there is nothing we residents can do about it.

What about City, County and State Governments - will they listen to citizen concerns?

In Meridian and Eagle, Idaho, the West Ada school officials seemed to be unconcerned.
Could that be due to the fact that the district receives up to $2,500 a month for each cell tower site or as much as $180,000 a year. The proposed tower on an Eagle Elementary school in 2013 was opposed by the public. But in 2017 Eagle High school installed a cell tower after it was APPROVED by the school board in 2016. After being informed of the radiation testing results at the school, there has been no response or comment from the school board or the state governments.
