Very cool read. Book is well written and enlightening. There is much to learn about trees and this book is very inspiring.

Unbelievable book. A crash course on tree ecology, a story about angels, a new (to me!) cure for cancer, an overview of the future climate change is bringing, a story full of fear and hope. IF you are at all interested in the environment or gardening and haven't read this book, you are missing out.
