Product description

Review

‘Marvellous’ John Banville, Irish Times

‘The Hidden Life of Trees is a wonderful, provocative book that draws together half a century of much-neglected and misunderstood plant science and frames it within field observations by an acute and empathetic forester.’ New Statesman

‘Shafts of light and mossy greens fill The Hidden Life of Trees. The reader does not leave the forest, and this aura intensifies the awareness of intricate natural life that the book has to offer. So much is happening in this one place. The colours, airs and sounds are all connected. They give us contact with the invisible world we now know to be there.' Guardian

‘The matter-of-fact Mr. Wohlleben has delighted readers and talk-show audiences alike with the news long known to biologists that trees in the forest are social beings.’ The New York Times

‘Peter Wohlleben’s The Hidden Life of Trees breaks entirely new ground … [Wohlleben] has listened to trees and decoded their language. Now he speaks for them.’ Thomas Pakenham, New York Review of Books

‘A declaration of love and an engrossing primer on trees, brimming with facts and an unashamed awe for nature.’ Washington Post

‘A magical book about fixtures that we walk by every day and take for granted … The Hidden Life of Trees may be the most important environmental book of the year.’ San Francisco Chronicle

4.0 out of 5 stars An Important Book
By Susanna Lynley on 1 October 2018
This is a very interesting book. It's not an easy read. I suspect that it suffers a little in translation. But for anyone interested in the environment, particularly trees and they way they learn, adapt and communicate with each other, it's not to be missed. Trees have been used as sources of food, shelter and tool making since the advent of life. They have been revered and sometimes feared. Above is an Aboriginal birthing tree: a hollow in which a woman could give birth with a modicum of privacy and shelter.
