I am a product designer trying to design a garden lighting system 
utilising alternative energy sources.  Can electricity be produced in 
a high enough quantity to power a light bulb from the molecular 
processes continuously acting in a tree? e.g photosynthesis, cellular 
energy production etc.  Can this electricity be harnessed?
