WHAT TREES CAN TEACH US

In NATURE’S STRATEGIES, Erwin Thoma describes the immeasurable cosmos of trees: their evolution, their strategies for survival, 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 their time has finally arrived, now more than ever.

Cooperation, moderate growth, networking and ecological thinking–if we want to stop climate change and reverse the destruction of nature, we cannot avoid using these and many other survival strategies the trees have developed over centuries. Erwin Thoma portrays their evolution vividly and extensively and shows how trees struggle from a small seed into the sky, how they enter into relationships with other forest dwellers, and how new life grows out of their demise.

NATURE’S STRATEGIES is an unusual book n trees and a passionate appeal to start building a better tomorrow.

Author

Erwin Thoma

Erwin Thoma, born in 1962, became a mountain guide and later a forester driven by his love for nature. Nowadays, he and his company Holz100 are specialized in building houses that are made out of wood, energy-self-sufficient and dispense with technology and insulating materials. In his books he takes his readers along into a world that unfortunately has become unfamiliar to many of them.

Geschichten, die einen Machthaber zittern und Menschen lachen und weinen lassen. Chronist der leisen Stimmen und Verfechter der Wahrheit sein. Wehrlosen eine Stimme geben. Kulturen verstehen. Menschen ermutigen. Mit Geschichten die Welt verändern. Das alles und noch viel mehr ist Benevento - ein frischer Wind für alle, die Bücher lieben.
