Educational and entertaining book about the lives of trees and how they interact with one another. Fascinating read, especially if you are walking/running through the woods yourself while listening to this book. The different perspective on time that this type of plant life has is difficult to envision. In the end I found myself to be a lot more compassionate towards trees. Especially, knowing how disruptive human intervention can be with regards to the maintenance of forests. Of course, there has to be a limit of where we would draw a line as society towards the feeling of other sentient being, but trees might be more perceptive than we give them credit for.
