I just finished Richard Powers’ novel about trees, The Overstory, and am now reading Peter Wohlleben’s nonfiction The Hidden Life of Trees, and it’s like a parallel universe has just become visible to me that has been right here all along. trees communicate with each other, trade, cooperate, and seemingly love. and I’ve just really realized that we are kind of like invading, conquering aliens to so many species that existed peacefully on the planet before us. I mean, duh, right? but still, I am seeing the world (and every tree I pass) in a whole new way. also, who else wants to work on Powers’ tree language translation software with me?? 🌳🌲🌴
