Trees talk, know family ties and care for their young? Is this too fantastic to be true? German forester Peter Wohlleben ('The Hidden Life of Trees') and scientist Suzanne Simard (The University of British Columbia, Canada) have been observing and investigating the communication between trees over decades. And their findings are most astounding. 

Trees are so much more than rows of wood waiting  to be turned into furniture, buildings or firewood. They are more than organisms producing oxygen or cleaning the air for us. They are individual beings that have feelings, know friendship have a common language and look after each other. This documentary explores the various ways that trees communicate with each other- from a forester's observations as well as through the microscope of a scientist.


If the themes of harmony, connection, and collaboration between humans and trees in the movie Avatar inspired you, stand by. That fiction was inspired in part by real life trees... And scientists, as it turns out. But there's more. Much more. And it has global implications for us all (Rachel Clark, "Smart Trees teach via new Film and Bestselling Book", Psychology Today).

Together, Wohlleben and Simard are a tree dream team (Melissa Breyer, "Trees can form bonds like an old couple and look after each other ", Treehugger.com).
