Based on his 2015 bestselling book, The Hidden Life of Trees, Peter Wohlleben vividly describes his belief that trees are able to communicate with each other. From acres of trees all the way down to the ants that traverse the soil, the natural forests of our Earth are superorganisms teeming with life. Although mankind has taken away more from our forests' than it can give, the beauty of nature is that it will never be destroyed, as it will always recover itself. We just hope to be around when it does.
