The Hidden Life of Trees

In The Hidden Life of Trees, Peter Wohlleben 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.

As a result of such interactions, trees in a family or community are protected and can live to be very old. In contrast, solitary trees, like street kids, have a tough time of it and in most cases, die much earlier than those in a group.

In this International bestseller, Wohlleben shares his deep love of woods and forests and explains the amazing processes of life, death, and regeneration of which we are blissfully unaware. With this newfound understanding of the delightfully complex life of Trees, readers will never be able to take a walk in the woods the same way again.
