Very interesting book. The author's love of trees (beech especially) shines through and I love some of his insights into the advantages of maintaining old growth forests. The writing style can feel a little simplistic at times and the short chapters make it feel a little like reading a series of blog entries at times; thankfully that doesn't detract too much from the content.

Are trees social beings? How do trees live? Do they feel pain or have awareness of their surroundings?
In The Hidden Life of Trees Peter Wohlleben makes the case that 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.
A walk in the woods will never be the same again.
