The Secret Life of Trees
The Secret Life of Trees: How They Live and Why They Matter | Colin Tudge
9 posts | 2 read | 7 to read
'Everyone interested in the natural world will enjoy The Secret Life of Trees. I found myself reading out whole chunks to friends' The Times, Books of the Year What is a tree? As this celebration of the trees shows, they are our countryside; our ancestors descended from them; they gave us air to breathe. Yet while the stories of trees are as plentiful as leaves in a forest, they are rarely told. Here, Colin Tudge travels from his own back garden round the world to explore the beauty, variety and ingenuity of trees everywhere: from how they live so long to how they talk to each other and why they came to exist in the first place. Lyrical and evocative, this book will make everyone fall in love with the trees around them.

The sky cleared and the sun and the moon made magic in the trees. #eclipse2017 🌙🌞🌒🌤

"A tree is a big plant with a stick up the middle--and a big plant with a stick up the middle is not an easy thing to be." ???#reademandeatathon

"Animals faced with such a mob would surely have packed themselves off to Russia." I love Colin Tudge's sense of humor. #reademandeatathon

"Nature was not designed to make life easy for biologists." There are many funny lines in this book. It's not all dry science and it answers questions that I've always had about trees. I am super obsessed with trees, but I can never talk to anyone about my obsession because I get very strange looks. This and other books about trees fills my need for treeish information and answers. Yay, trees, but they're weird. #reademandeatathon
