Are trees social beings? In his bestselling book, The Hidden Life of Trees, renowned forester and author Peter Wohlleben convincingly made the case that, yes: not only are trees able to communicate with each other, they live together in a network like families, and even warn each other of impending dangers. In this dazzling big screen adaptation, journey deep into the forest with Wohlleben as he discusses the complex life cycle of trees, from birth all the way to regeneration. What he reveals is a fascinating hidden world that will profoundly change how you think of nature. A walk in the woods will never be the same.
