Description: Trees that warn their neighbours of impending insect attack using scents and sound vibrations? Trees' parents caring for their offspring? Who would have thought? Presenting the science behind the latest discoveries about trees, forester Peter Wohlleben employs humour and anthropomorphic comparisons to great effect to convey just how trees feel and communicate. Whether it is woodland etiquette, the particular challenges trees in urban streets face, or the impact of climate change, the wide-ranging information is cogently presented.

This is a well-researched and intriguing commentary of trees in all their complexity.
