It’s been dawning on humanity over recent years how important trees are to us. That’s not just to our survival and to keeping the planet inhabitable, but also to our mental health and everyday happiness. This is quite a commercial book that would make a good gift, and it’s well-packaged and full of colour photos. It describes all the ways that trees care for us and likewise all the ways we can care for trees. The obvious possibilities the book discusses are how we can be more like trees and how being amongst trees can calm us and make us more fulfilled. It goes beyond that with suggestions of how we can befriend trees and play games around trees. Finally it’s very practical in the ways it proposes for us to help trees, and to protect them as individuals and collectively, including a very specific resources section., RRP £16.99
