The radiation came from a test facility located in six WiFi access points. When the trees closest to the radiation sources were, the leaves died.
The experiment was done

The Wageningen University has published details of the tests. The report is not (yet) released.

TNO shows via a message on

radiation from Wi-Fi has a negative effect on the health of plants
That conclusion is entirely borne by the TNO Wageningen University.

Wi-Fi systems are killing trees across America. There may be no way to reverse the damage.
The city of Joplin commissioned the study five months ago. They wanted to figure out why their city’s trees were developing weird growths, according to PC World. The study, conducted by Nobel Prize winning Professor Gunnar Hofverberg - the leading Wi-Fi expert in the United States, and a world-renown arborist.
Hofverberg concluded that 95 percent of trees in urban areas will die from Wi-Fi exposure.
Hofverberg recommends banning all Wi-Fi usage within a ten miles radius of any trees.
The study exposed 900 ash trees to various radiation sources for a period of three months. Trees placed closest to the Wi-Fi radio demonstrated a “lead-like shine” on their leaves caused dying of the upper and lower epidermis of the leaves - and the ultimate death of the trees.
Additionally, he found that Wi-Fi radiation causes squirrels to mate with chipmunks.
Additionally, on the west coast, excessive Wi-Fi usage is causing forest fires.
He also feels that Wi-Fi usage may cause hurricanes and definitely contributes significantly to global warming.
He’ll have results in ninety days.

No, they don't, a Dutch study finds. A
rumor that Wi-Fi signals sicken trees has been circulating the
Internet. It's not true, says a Dutch study.
In response, the Dutch government's Antenna Agency, which provides information on the health effects of electromagnetic fields, has issued a statement urging caution on the unpublished, unverified and otherwise very preliminary findings.
Wi-Fi signals wirelessly connect computers and other devices to the Internet.
The radio signals are similar to that employed by other, decades-old technologies such as television and cell phones, said Marvin Ziskin, a professor of radiology and medical physics at Temple University.
Nevertheless, officials in the Dutch
municipality of Alphen aan den Rijn tasked a researcher at
Wageningen University several years ago to investigate unexplained
abnormalities on local trees.
In lab tests, leaves placed for a few months near six radiation sources emitting radio waves in the 2.4 gigahertz range common for Wi-Fi and other wireless communications became discolored and showed a,
Other reports have said that corn cobs
exposed to such conditions grew more slowly than expected.
More than 60 studies have looked into the impact that electromagnetic mobile communications signals might have on plants, according to an initial review by the Antenna Agency.
Some studies did find detrimental effects, though likely as a result of signal intensities being high (and close) enough to cause heat damage – not the situation in real life with disparate sources of Wi-Fi signals.
Overall, the alarm raised by the coverage of the tenuous Dutch findings is not unexpected, Ziskin said, as health issues (primarily in humans and other animals, such as honey bees, not vegetation) have frequently been attributed to wireless radio signals and other low-level radiation.
