Description

 

Now with a new foreword by Peter Wohlleben, the international bestselling author of The Hidden Life of Trees and The Inner Life of Animals.

The story of a single tree, from the moment the seed is released from its cone until, more than five hundred years later, it lies on the forest floor as a nurse log, giving life to ferns, mosses, and hemlocks, even as its own life is ending. This new edition has been updated and revised to reflect the effects of climate change on forests.

Editorial Review

 

In this slight, lovely book, [Suzuki and Grady] tell the tale of one Douglas-fir tree that lived for more than five centuries. . . . Bateman’s misty drawings offer portraits of the tree’s companions - woodpeckers, eagles, mice, ferns - whose lives are more fleeting . . . This book is both a touching look at a single tree and an articulate testimony to nature’s cyclic power. — Publishers Weekly

“Read Tree. You will find wonder, magic and awe instead of the usual flight-or-fight responses elicited when we read about our ailing natural world. David Suzuki and Wayne Grady have hit exactly the right note.” — Globe and Mail
