A Super Book About Trees

I want to memorize every sentence in The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben. It’s a super book about the behavior of trees and how this behavior makes a complicated ecology that is a forest.

It explains how trees live in connection with their kin and describes the relationships between trees and other organisms. It illustrates how a forest functions as a living system. It talks about how they perceive the world and how they communicate. This book is written by a German forester turned conservation ecologist and is required reading for anyone interested in ecology, wildlife or plants to be able to participate in conversations on contemporary ecology. It’s also just a nice read.

He has written several similar books, this is the best one, but The Secret Wisdom of Nature is also a very good look at the interconnectedness of a forest.
