Does a tree scream?

    No. Definitely not. A tree is no more capable of screaming than is a squeaky door hinge, since neither of them possess a nervous system with which to generate emotions or emotional reactions to stimuli, which is what a scream is. So, even if a tree makes a noise as it falls, produced by the friction of its fibers against one another, it would be totally incorrect to claim that this is a “scream”.

    Since a scream is defined as “a loud, sharp, piercing cry,” and trees aren’t capable of creating sounds as such – no. Trees don’t carry a nervous system to allow for the feeling of pain as we know it, so being cut down is a shock to the system, but not painful or scream emitting.
