A forester's fascinating stories backed by the latest scientific research illustrate how trees nurture and talk to each other.

In this international bestseller – which has sold more than 320,000 copies in Germany alone – forester and author Peter Wohlleben draws on groundbreaking scientific discoveries to reveal the ways in which trees are like human families and communities: 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 describes how these discoveries have informed his own practices in his forestry work: a happy forest is a healthy forest, and we need to recognise and nurture these relationships to support sustainable development.

With their newfound understanding of the delightfully complex life of trees, readers will never be able to look at a walk in the woods the same way again.
