Tree Trilling By Pat Delgado

Tree Trilling

by Pat Delgado

In the late 80s I became curious about the different sounds I had heard in and round crop circles. I thought they might be emanating from the ground. I wondered how I could check this so I had the idea of putting two metal probes into the ground and connecting them with leads to a jack plug which I inserted into the microphone socket of a standard cassette tape recorder. Depending where I used the probes, the result was very interesting. I began playing back what I had recorded and was amazed at the different sounds of humming, clicking, buzzing and a mixture of other sounds.

In my garden I have a large sturdy Blue Cedar tree and as it was well connected to the ground I wondered if it carried any recordable sounds. At about one and a half metres up from the ground I inserted a probe through the bark and into the live wood underneath and I pushed the other probe into the ground about half a metre out from the trunk and recorded. The result was staggering – I was listening to a musical trilling sound.

Since that day I have recorded the same sound from various trees ranging over a very wide area. Despite enquiries, I have no answer as to how these trilling sounds are generated.

The report on Colin Andrews website regarding the trilling sound we encountered at the Cheesefoot Head crop circle generated much interest.

Through a fellow researcher, Miles Johnston, I contacted Win Keech who has filmed what strongly appears to be the formation of crop circles. I mentioned the trilling sound to him that I had recorded and the similarity between this and the crop circle trilling. He was intrigued when I played a sample of the tree trilling over the phone. I explained the probe recording procedure and he said he would try it. It was such a success that.........Read whole report on Colin Andrews website at:
