Scopri la vita segreta degli alberi Gli alberi ci somigliano molto più di quanto pensiamo. Quello che per molti è solo un bosco, è in realtà una comunità molto ben organizzata e coesa. In questo libro scoprirete che gli alberi sentono il dolore, hanno ricordi, sentimenti, parlano tra di loro e si prendono cura dei propri figli. Peter Wohlleben, celebre guardia forestale, grazie alla sua esperienza e agli studi durati una vita intera ci introduce alla vita nascosta degli alberi, portandoci in un mondo che mai avreste immaginato: gli alberi sono esseri sociali. Nei boschi secolari gli alberi si aiutano e si sostengono a vicenda come una vera e propria comunità, sono molto uniti tra di loro, tanto da condividere in momenti estremi il cibo, soprattutto con i vicini più in difficoltà.

As humans, daft creatures that we are, we are predisposed to look at where the action is. Swift movements, loud noises and bright colours capture our attention. Maybe this stems from our primitive instinct for survival, allowing us to spot the dangers darting in our general direction. Or it could be Leggi tutto

You can read this for the science or, like me, for how it helped me see. We are always in need of books that part the curtains of the familiar, the stuff we walk around and take for granted. In this case trees, all around us, the beings who help us breathe. It turns out they compete and cooperate an Leggi tutto

Tolkien was right. Trees live in the sloooooow lane (imagine healing a skin wound over decades) but what lives they lead! They have incredible social networks, share food, rear children, and care for the ill. Yes, there's some anthropomorphization here, but still... When evolution has figured out how Leggi tutto
My father’s father was a legendary grafter of trees. So I was told. He died a few years before I sprouted so I never knew him. But my father, who had a sense of wonder at the way things worked, learned the art; and so, I was able to see a peach tree that had one branch full of plums; and he grafted Leggi tutto
“We read in fairy tales of trees with human faces, trees that can talk, and sometimes walk. This enchanted forest is the kind of place, I feel sure, that Peter Wohlleben inhabits.
