We study an atmospheric corona discharge on plants and trees, because these discharges can be connected with sterilization and stimulation of biological objects and with the transfer of electrical charge to the Earth. It is shown that the form of current-voltage characteristics depends on the type of plant or tree. We report the measurement of characteristics on coniferous trees -spruce and pine, and analyse results for single-needle and multineedle system of electrodes. The differences can depend on the composition of the surrounding atmosphere, different ionization mechanism and phenological phases of the trees.
