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.

  • Wonderful.

    by on

    The Hidden Life of Trees is bright, inquisitive and brimming with genius. The kind of genius that belongs to a German forest manager.

    Peter Wohllenben pours a career's worth of hard work and groundbreaking discoveries from across the globe in this easy-to-read book. He does it through wonderful simple questions, How do forests work? Where do the trees come from? Why do they grow so old? What happens when they die? How they take care of and communicate with one another? What do trees feel?

    A wonderful, brain-ballooning book for all readers. Highly recommended.
