Description

How do trees live? Do they feel pain or have awareness of their surroundings? Research is now suggesting trees are capable of much more than we have ever known.

In The Hidden Life of Trees, forester Peter Wohlleben puts groundbreaking scientific discoveries into a language everyone can relate to.

In The Hidden Life of Trees, Peter Wohlleben shares his deep love of woods and forests and explains the amazing processes of life, death and regeneration he has observed in the woodland and the amazing scientific processes behind the wonders, of which we are blissfully unaware.

Much like human families, tree parents live together with their children, communicate with them and support them as they grow, sharing nutrients with those who are sick or struggling and creating an ecosystem that mitigates the impact of extremes of heat and cold for the whole group. 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.

Drawing on groundbreaking new discoveries, Wohlleben presents the science behind the secret and previously unknown lives of trees and their communication abilities; he describes how these discoveries have informed his own practices in the forest around him. As he says, a happy forest is a healthy forest, and he believes that ecofriendly practices not only are economically sustainable but also benefit the health of our planet and the mental and physical health of all who live on Earth.

After a walk through the woods with Wohlleben, you'll never look at trees the same way again.

Totally delightful!

This is unlike any book I'd think to read. It is like a delicate lullaby to listen to. It is gently educational in a story-telling way and fully engaging at all times. There is a reason it became a bestseller. Now I am much more aware of my surroundings and of the power of nature. So glad I read it (and I ended up listening to it twice).

A model of how science does not have to be dry

This book could have been so boring, but instead it's a model for how natural science can be interesting and compelling. The content is fascinating and made even better by the voice of Mike Grady. I'll see what else he reads just to hear him tell a story.

worth a listen.

Intriguing. I found a deeper understanding from the book. The narration was almost soothing. I would recommend this listen.
