“The Hidden Life of Trees” : FPL Book Group Next Meeting Tuesday September 17, 6:30 pm. Stearns Room:
The FPL Book Group will be discussing “The Hidden Life of Trees: What They Feel, How They Communicate- Discoveries from a Secret World” by Peter Wohlleben. Summer and fall are great times for long walks to look at trees, so Please join us in reading and discussing this fascinating book on September 17!
“Are trees social beings? ….. 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 learning about the complex life of trees, a walk in the woods will never be the same again.” — Amazon.
The book is available new and used in paperback, hardback and an illustrated addition, and through the Lincoln Library Minuteman Network.
