As I understand it at this point this communication and helping happens in forests when trees are grouped naturally and not in commercial enterprises from trees that have been potted or burlaped which disturbs their roots.

I also read 4% of street trees die from street light exposure.

Fascinating subject.
I'm familiar with the book you referenced and also found it excitingly fascinating. Symbiotic relationships between fungus, tree roots, and other organisms portray social, synchronized behavior for the success of allied species. It's truly amazing. I find myself wondering why everyone isn't talking about it.
