The Potential for Harvesting Energy from the Movement of Trees
Scott McGarry and Chris Knight
It appears that little investigation into converting the mechanical energy of tree movement to electrical energy has been previously performed. No published articles on such research exist to the authors’ knowledge, although a number of patents and patent applications for machines to convert “natural forces”, including tree movement, do [7–9], in particular  claims up to 1 kW might be available from a 20 m tall tree.
