En los bosques suceden cosas sorprendentes: árboles que se comunican entre sí, árboles que aman y cuidan a sus hijos y a sus viejos y enfermos vecinos; árboles sensibles, con emociones, con recuerdos... ¡Increíble, pero cierto! Peter Wohlleben, guarda forestal y amante de la naturaleza, nos narra en este libro fascinantes historias sobre las insospechadas y extraordinarias habilidades de los árboles. Asimismo reúne por una parte los últimos descubrimientos científicos sobre el tema, y por otra sus propias experiencias vividas en los bosques; y con todo ello nos ofrece un emocionante punto de vista, una manera de conocer mejor a unos seres vivos con los que creemos estar familiarizados pero de los que desconocemos su capacidad de comunicación, su espiritualidad. Descubramos, gracias a este libro, un mundo totalmente nuevo...
Wohlleben habla de los árboles, de las amistades y las luchas entre ellos, de cómo se ayudan y de cómo y por qué enferman, de sus ritmos pausados, de sus necesidades y de sus longevas vidas.
Pero este no es un tratado de flora repleto de términos científicos. Al contrario, es un libro tan vivo como aquello de lo que habla. Wohlleben convierte a los árboles en seres cercanos y familiares, en amigos próximos. Habla desde su experiencia, desde la observación paciente y demorada a lo largo de los años, y lo hace con la misma naturalidad como si estuviera en efecto dando un paseo por el bosque a nuesto lado.

For me, this book only suffers by comparison with [b:The Hidden Life of Trees: What They Feel, How They Communicate – Discoveries from a Secret World|28256439|The Hidden Life of Trees What They Feel, How They Communicate – Discoveries from a Secret World|Peter Wohlleben|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1464281905s/28256439.jpg|48295241], which (at the risk of hyperbole) was life-changing. But there's plenty to mull over here, presented in Wohlleben's enjoyable style.

There are section of this book in which I think Wohlleben treads a little further beyond current science than I think is warranted. But I had a similar impression with [b:The Hidden Life of Trees: What They Feel, How They Communicate – Discoveries from a Secret World|28256439|The Hidden Life of Trees What They Feel, How They Communicate – Discoveries from a Secret World|Peter Wohlleben|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1464281905l/28256439._SX50_.jpg|48295241], but pretty much all of that turned out to be well-grounded science. So perhaps my current misgivings will prove unfounded. In any event, I learned some new stuff about trees, which always makes me happy.… (mais)

If you are lucky, a handful of times in your life you will encounter a book that changes the way you look at the world. The Hidden Life of Trees is just such a book (which is why I'm giving it five stars without a re-read). Wohlleben drew me in with a great combination of science and artistic description. I just want to give every book-reader I know a copy.
Now, it must be said: There's lots of solid science here, but Wohlleben employs language that most scientists and science writers would not feel comfortable using. He intentionally chooses to describe trees as volitional beings that make choices, instead of merely reacting to stimuli. He openly admits (although somewhat belatedly and not frequently enough, IMO) that this point of view and narrative choice are controversial. But at least he is open about this and is not letting people think that his is a widely shared opinion. Because of Wohlleben's honesty on this point, I can enjoy (and even entertain) his ideas in a way that I could not if he were less forthcoming.… (mais)
