Environmental Book Club: The Hidden Life of Trees

Wed, July 29 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

The Hidden Life of Trees

Join a virtual discussion about The Hidden Life of Trees: What They Feel, How They Communicate―Discoveries from A Secret World by Peter Wholleben with members of the Earthplace team.

Do you wonder if trees social beings? In The Hidden Life of Trees forester and author Peter Wohlleben convincingly 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. You will never walk in the woods the same way again!
