The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben Percolator Press Book Review

In his incredible bookThe Hidden Life of Trees, author Peter Wohlleben brings you swiftly into his world of giant German beech trees where 80 years of age still counts as being youthful, and the grandfathers of the forest are climbing towards centuries-old birthdays.

Leaning on evidenced research and findings from forest ecologists, Wohlleben posits that trees are able to perceive, feel & communicate and that groups of species establish communities much the same as humans do. With a simple writing style and the clear wonder with which the author views the forest readers are quickly wrapped up in the magic of his, and his trees’ world.

There is myriad research suggesting time spent amongst nature and particularly, surrounded by trees, is good for mental and physical wellbeing. So, what are you waiting for? Go out and get your dose ofShin-rin yoku!
