The Power of Trees: How Ancient Forests Can Save Us If We Let Them

by Peter Wohlleben Author

A manifesto on forests, how they can save us, and how we need to protect them from the author of the beloved The Hidden Life of Trees. Peter Wohlleben has taught us to see trees and forests in a whole new light: as interconnected systems with robust communication networks and relationships. Now he tackles the bigger picture of how humans interact with trees, with a compelling critique of forestry management and modern tree planting practices. Forests are the lungs of the planet, necessary to keep the place habitable for humans. More than a collection of trees, they are vast, complex ecosystems. They're struggling, but they know how to heal themselves—if we let them.
