Peter  Wohlleben - The Hidden Life of Trees


A new look at old friends

Amazing things go on in the woods: there are trees communicating with one another, trees lovingly caring for and looking after their offspring and their old and afflicted neighbours, trees with sensibilities, emotions, a memory. Incredible? Perhaps. But true!

Forest ranger Peter Wohlleben tells some fascinating stories about the unexpected and extraordinary abilities of trees. To this end, he cites both the latest scientific findings and his own direct experience of woods, thus creating an exciting new encounter for readers: we make the acquaintance of a living being that we thought we were familiar with but which we now see in all its vitality. And we enter a completely new world…

"The Hidden Life of Trees is a wonderful, provocative book [...] by an acute and empathetic forester."
