Electric forces within the mature sprout system of woody plants have the strength to define the plant’s growth, direction, and shape. Each branch and plant also electrically influences the shape and direction of neighboring branches and plants.


This paper has transient voltage recordings of 1) Aspen (populus grandidentata), 2) Blue Spruce, (picea pungens), 3) Gray Dogwood (cornus racemosa lam), 4) Sugar Maple (acer saccharum), and 5) Corn (zea maize). The recordings evidence of electrons and resultant electrical force calculations presented in this paper show that large numbers of electrons are flowing upwards in woody plants (trees) and have enough force to define the plant’s shape.  The electrons and the repulsive forces they create are proposed to cause three dimensional (3d) solid copies of electric field "lines of force" within the tree as it grows.
