The Hidden Life of Trees

The whole world is talking about the environment, but frequently fails to listen to nature itself. Author Peter Wohlleben has changed all that: in The Hidden Life of Trees he opens our eyes to the hidden world of the woods. Wohlleben tells us in an entertaining and enlightening fashion about the solidarity and cohesion of the trees and strikes a chord with his ever-growing community of readers: he brings us closer to these astounding living entities in guided tours of the woods and readings. Wohlleben travels to Sweden to see the oldest tree in the world; he visits businesses in Vancouver that are looking for a new approach to how to treat the woods; he sides with the Hambacher Forst demonstrators. Because he knows that we humans can only survive if the woods are healthy – and that the eleventh hour is already upon us…
