Are trees social beings? In this international bestseller, forester and author Peter Wohlleben convincingly makes the case that, yes, the forest is a social network.

He draws on groundbreaking scientific discoveries to describe how trees are like human families: tree parents live together with their children, communicate with them, support them as they grow, share nutrients with those who are sick or struggling, and even warn each other of impending dangers. Wohlleben also shares his deep love of woods and forests, explaining the amazing processes of life, death, and regeneration he has observed in his woodland.

After you have read The Hidden Life of Trees, a walk in the woods will never be the same again.

I really wanted to like this book more, but the excessive anthropomorphism and pseudoscience really bothered me to the point that I couldn't give more than two stars. There is a lot of good and interesting information in the book, despite that. I also think it could have been organised better and so...

3.0 The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben
And interesting look at how trees live and function. Each short chapter covers one or another aspect of tree life, such as water transport, bug-life, roots, growth etc. I found the writing style too "chatty" with not enough nitty-gritty science.
