Trees can hear us – at least, that is why I am utterly convinced about now.

Have you seen the latest viral trend on TikTok? People are asking trees to touch their shoulders and get this – most of the time, it’s actually happening!

Videos all over TikTok show what seemingly has a tree branch reaching out to touch someone’s shoulder or face after being asked to and it’s blowing my mind.

Can Trees Hear You?

After seeing video after video about trees being able to hear us, I went down that rabbit hole and turns out, a study says trees can actually hear us.


According to research from Tel Aviv University, plants and flowers can react to sound.

Among multiple research studies, the overarching conclusion has been even though plants don’t have ears, they can “hear” sounds in their local environment and can even react.


So, it may not seem so crazy after all.

Sure, some are not convinced and say it’s either wind or people attaching fishing line to make these trees seemingly touch someone but hey, the only way to know is to try it out for yourself, right?


So, next time you’re bored or just feeling in touch with nature, head outside and see if you can kindly ask your tree to touch you. You may be pleasantly surprised by the outcome!
