book cover image The Hidden Life of Trees

Forester Peter Wohlleben loves trees. As a young man he discovered the forest, like the Internet, is a social network. 

Using scientific research and his own observations, Wohlleben has delighted talk-show audiences with the news — long known to biologists — that trees in the forest are social beings.

They can count, learn and remember. They nurse sick neighbors; they warn each other of danger by sending electrical signals across a fungal network. They even keep the stumps of companions alive for centuries by feeding them a sugar solution through their roots.

For the New York Times review.
