2020-08-10 How EMR (5G) affects trees

1) Many people have been visited by Telus and offered “free” fiber optic cable which eventually will form part of the backbone of the new 5G grid. As of 2018, Telus was installing a Nokia terminal in the house or garage, connected to a gray box on the outside of the home. Here is a photo of it:


Can those of you who have had installations in the last few months tell me if this is the same model that you have?


Can you please let me know if the model you have is the same or if another one is being used now? If a different one, can you please let me know the model? Send to:

citizensforsafertech@shaw.ca with “Telus terminal” on the subject line. I would be most grateful for any information.

2) Most people don’t realize that EMF affects all living things, including plants. A member sent this info in and hopes that it will be shared with gardeners, botanists, and environmental groups. At the top of the EHT page, there is a 30 min. video of “Tree growers symposium on tree damage from cell tower radiation” – a video with English subtitles, loaded with scientific information and a report by biologists.


“Electromagnetic (EMF) frequencies have been found to alter the growth and development of plants. Studies on wireless EMF frequencies have found physiological and morphological changes, increased micronuclei formationaltered growth as well as adverse cell characteristics such as thinner cell walls and smaller mitochondria. Electromagnetic exposure results in biochemical changes Research shows that plants perceive and respond to electromagnetic fields and are a good model to study the biological effects of exposure.

Documentation of tree damage from base stations is made visible in the Report “Tree Damage Caused by Mobile phone base stations” in which he states, “RF radiation effects on plants have not been considered. In the Explosive Proliferation of the diverse wireless communication technologies across the entire environment and almost all areas of life, this represents an uncovered risk” (Breunig, 2017).   [correct link: https://kompetenzinitiative.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/2017_Observation_Guide_ENG_FINAL_RED.pdf]

Note: EMFs also have been shown to alter the behavior of bees and birds.”

Radiofrequency radiation injures trees around mobile phone base stations

“The measurements of all trees revealed significant differences between the damaged side facing a phone mast and the opposite side, as well as differences between the exposed side of damaged trees and all other groups of trees in both sides. Thus, we found that side differences in measured values of power flux density corresponded to side differences in damage. The 30 selected trees in low radiation areas (no visual contact to any phone mast and power flux density under 50μW/m2) showed no damage. Statistical analysis demonstrated that electromagnetic radiation from mobile phone masts is harmful for trees. These results are consistent with the fact that damage afflicted on trees by mobile phone towers usually start on one side, extending to the whole tree over time.”


3) Another consideration re. 5G and trees. Milliwaves, unless boosted by the strong beam signalling, are interfered with by things that get in the way, such as vegetation. Trees probably will be cut down to enable the milliwave signals to get to the homes.

Like trees? Enjoy breathing oxygen? You should oppose 5G

“However, it appears that the millimetre wave radiation component of 5G systems may pose an even greater risk to trees – a risk of sudden death, in fact.

In March 2018, the British paper The Sun ran a story with the headline: “5G TREE THREAT New 5G phone system could face reception problems from trees with too many LEAVES”. (See: https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/5838497/5g-phone-system-reception-problems-trees/). The article also states that rain drops may interfere with 5G.

In at least one part of the UK, the local response to the fact that the trees’ leaves could pose a problems for 5G networks, appears to be to be to simply kill the trees.

In the English city of Sheffield there is a massive cull of mature, and in many cases, healthy street trees, going on, despite opposition from many residents.”
