Our take

Written by a German forester, ‘The Hidden Life of Trees’ calls to reimagine forests seeing them less as producers of oxygen and wood to perceiving them more as social beings. It is an engaging and easy read that is very likely to spark curiosity about the natural world and change the way you look at trees. Trees communicate, can learn and have memory. They are connected through a fungal ‘wood wide web’ that allows them to channel nutrients and support each other (also check Suzanne Simard’s first-hand account of this discovery in her “Finding the Mother Tree”). This book will make you marvel at nature and will likely change the way you see it.

Publisher's description

Are trees social beings? How do trees live? Do they feel pain or have awareness of their surroundings?

In The Hidden Life of Trees Peter Wohlleben makes the case that 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.

A walk in the woods will never be the same again.
