Description

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 learning about the complex life of trees, a walk in the woods will never be the same again.   Includes a Note From a Forest Scientist, by Dr.Suzanne Simard

Author description

"Peter Wohlleben spent over twenty years working for the forestry commission in Germany. He gave up his job because he wanted to put his ideas of ecology into practice and now runs an environmentally friendly woodland in Germany, where he is working for the return of primeval forests. He is the author of numerous books about trees."
