A forester from Germany became a nature rock star a few years ago with a book that challenged notions many of us hold about trees. The first time I read his book, it made me smile at the facts and trivia I learned about trees.
I’m rereading The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben (2016) and this time around, I’m seeing lessons that could be useful for humans. Because he managed and lived in forests around Germany, Wohlleben spent a lot of time observing, then reading about and studying trees. He says, for example, that trees communicate with and care for each other, share food, provide habitat for many types of insects and animals, and can help humans become and stay healthy. Here are three other ideas, though, that may give humans insight about our own lives.
