5G & RF Radiation Damage To Trees

The Long-Term Harm Caused By 5G & All Forms Of Wireless Radiation:

Note:  This page focuses on the harm caused to trees and plants.  Extensive information and scientific evidence of the harm caused by wireless radiation to human health is available in the Archives section on the right in the December 2019 and March 2020 sections.
Several studies exist proving the biological harm caused by wireless radiofrequency radiation to trees, plants, wildlife and human health.  Below are a few.  Several more are listed in the 5G templates posted in the December 2019 and March 2020 section of the archives on the right along with additional detail.
Another issue with 5G and trees is that leaves weaken signals.  As a result of this, the mobile industry has stated very clearly their plans to top, prune or fell all trees close to cell towers and cell antennas.  It is no coincidence that the rampant topping, stub-cutting, severe pruning and felling of thousands of trees across Ireland, Britain and Europe is taking place just before and during the rollout of 5G.  Millions of trees are felled or butchered  every year to pave the way for faster download times on 5G phones.
Do you think this is a good idea?  Do you think faster movie download times is worth the destruction of so many trees?  Trees are important for air purification, health, reduction of flooding, climate change, bird and wildlife habitat and a host of other benefits.  Does it make sense to sacrifice all of this over something as trivial as movie download times on a phone?  Keep in mind that 5G has nothing to do with downloading movies on your laptop.  It relates to phones only, not computers.
5G is not a replacement of 4G and 3G.  Instead it adds new intensified layers of radiation in addition to what we currently have.  Due to the weakness of the signals, it requires placing small cell antennae every 60 to 150 metres apart.  It will be beamed at us 24/7 with no option to avoid it or turn it off.  With current wireless we have the option to turn it off and use wired.  With 5G there is no option. 

To Protect Our Health & The Health Of Our Environment:

We encourage everyone to write to their local councillors, TD’s, senators & MEP’s informing them of the risks of 5G and requesting that they submit and support motions at their next local council meeting requesting that the 5G deployment be stopped and an independent investigation and review carried out of the full scientific literature on the issue.  Currently there are over 3,700 independent peer-reviewed studies and several thousand additional scientific studies proving the significant biological harm caused by RF wireless radiation.  The government and mobile companies are refusing to look at this evidence and instead are cherry-picking industry-funded studies that produce the results they want.
Templates are available in the December 2019 and March 2020 archives on the right.  Additional templates are available on the ES-Ireland website at:

Official Report Commissioned By The UK Government
Mobile network planners need to take into account the location of things that are likely to weaken or block the signal from their masts -for example trees, buildings or lamp-posts. This is going to be particularly important for 5G, which uses high-frequency radio waves that do not travel as far as those used for 4G.

World’s Largest Animal Study On Cell Tower Radiation Confirms Cancer Link:
2018 Ramazzini Institute Life-Span Study:
“The evidence indicating wireless is carcinogenic has increased and can no longer be ignored,” stated University of Toronto Dalla Lana School of Public Health Professor Emeritus Anthony B. Miller MD, Member of the Royal Colleges of Physicians of Canada and the UK, and Senior Medical Advisor to EHT who is also a long-term advisor to the World Health Organization.
The National Toxicology Program Cell Phone Radiation Study
November 2018
The National Toxicology Program (NTP), which cost $25 million dollars and took  10 years to complete, concluded there is clear evidence that high levels of radio frequency radiation (RFR) like that used in 2G and 3G cell phones causes cancerous heart tumours.
This $25 million study is the most complex study completed by the NTP and the world’s largest rodent study on radiofrequency radiation exposure to date which found long term exposure at non-thermal levels associated with brain cancer and schwannomas of the heart.  In addition damage to heart was found in all exposure levels.
