Book Review: “The Hidden Life of Trees” by Peter Wohlleben

In Richard Powers’ Pulitzer Prize-winning novel┬áThe Overstory, there is a character who has dedicated her life to the study of trees and discovers that they are capable of communicating with each other. While this may sound fantastic, there is a growing amount of real science behind the idea, and I had been very curious about it ever since having read the book last year.
