I have a plant which is dying near my WiFi router…
Thank you for your post. I think you might be interested in reading some of our blog posts regarding the way EMFs affect nature:

Please let us know what you think.
Have great day,
PS. I recommend moving the plant further away from the WiFi router.
I enjoyed your article. It surprises me how little I found on the subject of trees and wifi effects. My small town has gone crazy with broadband hanging wires everywhere and connected to every house. (which I never agreed to, just woke up and they were there.) The effects on our trees only recently came to mind when the trees in my neighbor’s and my yard started to literally fall apart. When the first huge branch snapped of from a tree in back yard from the base of tree and right onto my car. I chalked it up to weather. Next, it happened to the one in my front yard, which I blamed on a bad municipal trim job right down the center of tree top. Until this summer when 3 more fell and I’m not talking about small branches. 4 out of the 5 were larger enough to cover an SUV and roughly at least a foot and half if not more thick. The last one that fell is what stuck out to me. It has a full end of green leaves and looked healthy. Until, you looked closer at the bark. It is like something is attacking the bark, making it flake and peel up and look almost a bit moldy in parts. When I went to break it down, this thick branch stump snapped like a tree that has been dead for years. So, I looked up tree diseases and this should of put my thoughts to rest. Yet, I can’t shake how what is left standing of these trees is still trying to grow and live. Except anywhere near these wires. Where the wires hang slightly above, the tree limbs are black or rotten looking on top half and have absolutely no spouts stretching up towards the sun like they should. Instead, the spouts grow on the underneath of branch pointing down towards the sidewalk and undeniably away from any wires. I’m not sure if this next observation is linked, but as I took more notice of all the neighboring trees on my block, (which 8 out of 10 are effected) I noticed that probably 7 out of 10 of my neighbors houses have mold or moss problems on the siding and/or porch roofs. I have lived in my home for 19 years and only within the past couple years or so, did I start to notice stuff growing on my house. I wonder if the deterioration of our trees has invited in a more invasive plant life that is not effected by the wifi wires and almost seems to thrive from it. So, I’m curious if in your research you may have came across anything to explain or back my theory?
Check out the work of Arthur Firstenberg…especially his book, The Invisible Rainbow. You will find information about the effects of electromagnetic radiation that you will find nowhere else without spending hundreds of hours in the library. You can find a lot of interesting information peppering his newsletters, which are archived here: https://www.cellphonetaskforce.org/newsletters/, as well as some brief information on his various websites, including https://static1.squarespace.com/static/5ec1b59ace07e742d0c63679/t/5ec303af3578297ab8865a4e/1589838770110/Cell+Phone+Questions+and+Answers+-+2.pdf, which you can find a link to on https://www.echoearth.org - search for “FAQ”
