“[Peter] Wohlleben has delighted readers and talk-show audiences alike with the news—long known to biologists—that trees in the forest are social beings.”
—The New York Times
Are trees social beings? In this international bestseller, which has sold over 2 million copies worldwide, forester Peter Wohlleben reveals the social network of the forest.
The Hidden Life of Trees draws on ground-breaking scientific discoveries to describe how trees are like human families: tree parents live together with their children, they 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.
A walk in the woods will never be the same again after reading this awe-inspiring book.
