Cara from Daily Record Explains Cooperative BioBalance

We received a phone call about being included in an article about organic lawn care. As we discussed our work, Cara instead decided to include us into the following week’s theme on trees for Daily Record’s Grassroots section. She did such a wonderful job of explaining our work!

Jim Conroy believes that, like humans, trees and plants respond to touch, bioenergy and other alternative forms of healing.

Conroy, who calls himself the “Tree Whisperer,” intuits the health of trees and teaches others to communicate with nature in a way that will bring a broken ecosystem back into balance.

Along with Basia Alexander, he co-founded the Morris Plains-based Institute for Cooperative BioBalance. The two bring their hands-on tree-healing experiences to private residences, arboretums, institutes and research sites.

“It’s more than teaching people. It’s about giving people an experience,” Conroy said. “Tree whispering changes people’s relationship with trees, plants, insects, diseases and whole ecosystems.”

For seven years Conroy and Alexander have taught at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, where curriculum developer Susie Arnett says the ecosystem is “just blooming … it’s the greenest, healthiest place you could imagine.”

Conroy says he works to strengthen trees inner health; instead of trying to eradicate invasive species that devastate tree populations, Conroy says he brings the ecosystem back into balance.

“Today’s ecosystem is not connected. We move from one invasive species to the next, one disease to the next,” he said. “But these insects have a purpose. It’s about getting the trees healthy enough and bringing that dynamic balance back.”
