Description

A NEW YORK TIMES, WASHINGTON POST, AND WALL STREET JOURNAL BESTSELLER

  • One of the most beloved books of our time: an illuminating account of the forest, and the science that shows us how trees communicate, feel, and live in social networks. After reading this book, a walk in the woods will never be the same again.

    "Breaks entirely new ground ... [Peter Wohlleben] has listened to trees and decoded their language. Now he speaks for them."The New York Review of Books

    NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY BRAINPICKINGS

  • HONORABLE MENTION: SEJ Rachel Carson Environment Book Award
  • Shortlisted: Audible International Book of the Year Award
  • Books For a Better Life Award Indie Choice Award—Nonfiction Book of the Year

    Are trees social beings? In The Hidden Life of Trees 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 that he has observed in his woodland.

    "A declaration of love and an engrossing primer on trees, brimming with facts and an unashamed awe for nature."—Washington Post

    "Heavily dusted with the glitter of wonderment."—The New Yorker

    Includes a Note From a Forest Scientist by Dr.Suzanne Simard
