Are trees social beings? In this international bestseller, 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 he has observed in his woodland.

After learning about the complex life of trees, a walk in the woods will never be the same again. Includes a Note From a Forest Scientist, by Dr.Suzanne Simard

"A paradigm-smashing chronicle of joyous entanglement that will make you acknowledge your own entanglement in the ancient and ever-new web of being."--Charles Foster, author of Being a Beast

“Beautifully magical”

This is the first time I have read a book about nature since I was a child and this book is brilliant. I'm usually not a fan of non-fiction, but the short easy to read chapters make this book such an easy-read!... More

“Relayed review.”

I bought this book for my son, a tree surgeon, who loves trees with a passion. He called me to thank me and to say that he is really enjoying reading it.
