The Secret Life of Trees: How They Live and Why They Matter

by Colin Tudge
£12.99   paperback  Penguin Books (2006)

The Secret Life of Trees: How They Live and Why They Matter by Colin Tudge What is a tree? As this celebration shows, they are our countryside; our ancestors evolved in them; they gave us air to breathe. Yet while their stories are as plentiful as leaves in a forest, they are rarely told.
Here, Colin Tudge travels from his own back garden around 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.

"Wondrous and important... You'll discover how the maple leaf turns red in the fall, why koalas have such small brains, and the fice other tree-products, after the wood of the white willow, that make up a cricket bat... a holy botanical litany."
