Additional Notes

From The Publisher*


  • Updated and revised to reflect the effects of climate change on forests
  • Now with a new foreword by Peter Wohlleben, internationally bestselling author of The Hidden Life of Trees and The Inner Life of Animals

The story of a single tree, from the moment the seed is released from its cone until, more than five hundred years later, it lies on the forest floor as a nurse log, giving life to ferns, mosses, and hemlocks, even as its own life is ending.

"From the tiny seed of a single Douglas-fir, David Suzuki and Wayne Grady have grown a wonderful book, learned but lovely, thorough but terse. It's as big as all life."
- David Quammen, author of The Song of the Dodo and The Tangled Tree

"Read Tree. You will find wonder, magic and awe instead of the usual flight-or-fight responses elicited when we read about our ailing natural world. David Suzuki and Wayne Grady have hit exactly the right note."
-Globe and Mail
