Peter Wohlleben to Discuss ‘The Hidden Life of Trees’


The Greenwich Tree Conservancy welcomes Peter Wohlleben, author of The Hidden Life of Trees, on Tuesday, March 12 at 7 p.m., at Greenwich Library Cole Auditorium. Refreshments will be served at 6:30 p.m. and a Q&A and book signing will follow the presentation. Admission is free, but registration is required at treeconserv@optonline.net

In his best selling book, heralded as groundbreaking by the New York Review of Books, Wohlleben reveals startling new discoveries about how trees nurture each other, communicate and maintain complex social networks. He presents the latest scientific evidence behind the secret and previously unknown life of trees.

A recent Smithsonian Magazine article states that a revolution has been taking place in the understanding of trees and that scientific studies have confirmed what Wolhlleben has long suspected from close observation. “Trees are far more alert, social, sophisticated—and even intelligent—that we thought.”

This program is in partnership with the Greenwich Library and co-sponsors include the Greenwich Botanical Center, Greenwich Garden Club, Greenwich Land Trust, Audubon Connecticut, Bartlett Arboretum & Gardens, Greenwich Green and Clean, Bruce Museum, Landscape Architecture Continuing Education System and the Association of Professional Landscape Designers.
