Description

Opening this book, you are about to enter a wonderland." Tim Flannery, author of Atmosphere of Hope and The Weather Makers "Charming, provocative, fascinating." David George Haskell, author of The Forest Unseen, Pulitzer finalist Are trees social beings? In this international bestseller, forester and author Peter Wohlleben convincingly makes the case that, yes, the forest is a social network. He draws on groundbreaking scientific discoveries to describe how trees are like human families- tree parents live together with their children, communicate with them, support them as they grow, share nutrients with those who are sick or struggling, and even warn each other of impending dangers. Wohlleben also shares his deep love of woods and forests, explaining the amazing processes of life, death, and regeneration he has observed in his woodland. After you have read The Hidden Life of Trees, a walk in the woods will never be the same again.show more
