WHAT TREES CAN TEACH US
In NATURE’S STRATEGIES, Erwin Thoma describes the immeasurabe cosmos of trees: their evolution over centuries, their survival strategies, their bonds with us humans. In his typical entertaining style and with great expert knowledge he explains what we can learn from trees and why they are so important for our future.
In his new book, Erwin Thoma portrays the evolution of trees vividly and extensively. He shows how they struggle from the root area into the sky, how they gain character over the years, what kinds of relationships they enter into with other forest dwellers, and which new life grows out of their demise. Moreover, he demonstrates vividly that the time of trees has arrived, now more than ever: We can no longer avoid using their wisdom on survival and their healing powers for us if we want to stop the effects of climate change and reverse the destruction of nature. An unusual book on trees full of fascinating stories and myths, interesting details and connections, and with a passionate appeal to us humans.
