The claim is that no matter how many connections to a single tree are
made that a further volt ( more or less) comes from each connection.
Maybe fifty needle sized connections would produce 12 volts at one amp
, is at least the hope.

How would you get these in series though. This doesn't
work having more than one per tree and I strongly
suspect this stems from one electrode being grounded.
How do you like them apples?
single tree are
volts at one amp

I missed that one!
What you seem to have failed to understand is that the _tree_ is not
producing the electricity - it's coming from the gradual destruction of the
metal. Now if you can convince the tree to recharge the battery, you have
an amazing discovery!

Well in one sense I doubt that its a hoax, but I also doubt whether it
will "save the world"
Reading the article it looks like a simple aluminium/copper cell to
me, with a bit of hocus-pocus thrown in. We have dis-similar metals in
a very weak electrolyte (the liquid of the tree and ground).
I suspect it would work much better if the aluminium nail and copper
pipe were put into a glass of salt water - rather than ruining a tree!
Filtering current I understand - cleaning it I do not.

I guess the key to this is the adding of the voltages.
Is that something that is relatively simple?
Can I take a number of .7 volt feeds and couple them up to produce 12
volts at a usable amperage?
In different words could a bushel of 'potato clocks' or a number of
tree spikes in this case, be coupled up to run a light or charge a
