Description

 

  • Updated and revised to reflect the effects of climate change on forests
  • Now with a new foreword by Peter Wohlleben, internationally 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.

"From the tiny seed of a single Douglas-fir, David Suzuki and Wayne Grady have grown a wonderful book, learned but lovely, thorough but terse. It's as big as all life."
— David Quammen, author of The Song of the Dodo and The Tangled Tree

"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

Robert Bateman, a naturalist and painter, was born in Toronto, Ontario, in 1930. Fascinated by the natural world as a child, inspired by the Group of Seven and encouraged by his parents, Robert developed a painting style that has been internationally lauded, and his work has been exhibited around the world. As an artist, an art and geography teacher and an advocate, Robert has used his renown to promote environmental causes, and in 1999 the Audubon Society named him one of the top 100 environmental proponents of the twentieth century. Robert was made an Officer of the Order of Canada in 1984 and a Member of the Order of British Columbia in 2001. He lives on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia.
