Description from Guideboat
Trees are social beings. They communicate with and care for each other, have children and support them as they grow, deliver sustenance to the weakest and oldest among them, even warn each other when a threat approaches. A professional forester, Peter Wohlleben was trained to look at trees as a commodity, calculating board feet and assessing grain alignment. But 20 years ago in the mountain forests of Germany, he began to look deeper. What he discovered is nothing short of astonishing. In this best-selling book, he shares his discoveries, along with a woodsman’s lifetime of knowledge and a passion for preservation. Hardcover; 272 pages.
