A groundbreaking discovery that will change how we think of trees forever.
Forester Peter Wohlleben reflects his deep love for woods and forests and shows us that nothing is as it seems. Trees are mysterious, and despite knowing that trees are alive, we think of them as if they are not. But what if I told you there is significant evidence that points to the fact they feel pain and are aware of their surroundings? Interesting, huh? Everything you need to know about the subject is within The Hidden Life of Trees.

“When you know that trees experience pain and have memories and that tree parents live together with their children, then you can no longer just chop them down and disrupt their lives with larger machines.” (Peter Wohlleben)
Believe it or not, trees and humans are not that different. They live together with their children, they communicate and support each other. It’s crazy to even think about it because we have grown with the idea that trees don’t amount to much, but they actually do. That’s why The Hidden Life of Trees is such a great read: It reveals a mysterious world filled with interesting secrets and facts about this tall plant.
Build empathy for other living things and learn more about the world that surrounds you.
P.S. The Hidden Life of Trees is an extraordinary book that shows us that trees are capable of much more than we think.
