Jim Conroy, Ph.D., earned his doctorate in Plant Pathology from Purdue University and spent 25 years as a successful executive in top ag-chem companies. After undergoing a life-changing moment, he calls himself The Tree Whisperer®.

He is an author,  visionary expert on Nature-based communication, and a global authority who holistically heals trees, plants, and ecosystems with his new, intuitive and bioenergy-healing, leading-edge approach to tree and plant health, called Tree Whispering®.

Research is ongoing for Dr. Conroy. His latest research study involves Co-Existence Technologies™: the practical application of the principle  “LIVE AND LET LIVE” to Ash Trees and the non-native insect, Emerald Ash Borer, at test sites in Connecticut, New York, Massachusetts, and New Jersey.  He has already achieved success through Co-Existence Technologies by dynamically balancing the Pine Bark Beetle on tracts of land with Lodgepole Pines in Winter Park and Vail, Colorado.  He is also working on water-ecosystems in New York state and New Jersey.

As co-author of the popular Tree Whispering® series of books, he inspires Nature lovers to validate their deep connection with Nature and their core selves, while adopting new ideas and practices towards trees, plants, and ecosystems. Readers see trees–and their own world–through new eyes. People have “ah-ha” insights that lead them into better stewardship of their trees and land, and to greater gardening success.

As creator of Tree Whispering®, Dr. Conroy teaches globally. In classes, people engage in healthy, inspiring, and profound connections with the living Beings of Nature. Participants magnify intuitive perception, improve well-being, and use easy, simple, heart-based “touch and focus” methods. Tree care professionals are invited to attend and expand their attitudes and practices.

As a long-time member of the faculties at The Omega Institute and The Nature Lyceum and as a veteran teacher, he leads people to make the dream of healthy, vigorously growing trees, plants, crops, and forests available to everyone. His delivery style is informative, inspirational,
thought-provoking, fast-paced, humorous, and warm.

His leading-edge professional systems, Tree Whispering®, Green Centrics™ and Co-Existence Technologies™ combine modern plant science with the new sciences, ancient wisdom, and right-brain/heart-based/hands-on practices. He achieves totally earth-friendly and truly sustainable results entirely without products––by healing compromised internal functionality. His life’s work is to reverse stress in trees, plants, forests, and crops, as well as to establish dynamic balance in ecosystems that have been fragmented by invasive insects and diseases. EcoPeace Treaties™ accomplish such rejuvenation. Because of his ag-chem background, he can relate to conventional approaches while bringing his innovations forward.

He is an impassioned keynote speaker at public and professional events, provides professional services on private properties, estates, parks, and gardens, is certified in organic land care, and a rose grower.

With Ms. Basia Alexander, he co-founded the Institute for Cooperative BioBalance®. The Institute’s mission is to foster cooperative and equal partnerships among all of the Beings of Nature, and to transform people’s role within ecosystems. Initiatives include ecosystem studies with invasive organisms.

As co-authors, their books and supporting materials champion do-it-yourself approaches, enlightened attitudes, educated environmentalism, visionary tree advocacy, and practical spirituality.
