The Hidden Life of Trees, by Peter Whohlleben

by Peter Whohlleben, 2016

Does a tree cry when it is bulldozed down? The answer is yes, the forest cries. This book likens the forest to a human city in all our complexities. Trees communicate with each other, crowd out the unwanted, protect the young and the vulnerable, and even use natural chemical emissions to ward off insects.
