      Overview

      This book tells us how to look at, listen to and take care of the woods.

      A ranger and an oceanographer explain why it is crucial to protect the balance between humankind and the environment, and how nature has the wondrous ability to regenerate itself. It is a compelling read packed with stunning, exclusive pictures that show us how trees are born, grow and die, and reminds us of what happens when we fail to protect the woods.

      For instance, the north-east Vaia storm revealed undeniable signs of a teetering age-old balance, of forests no longer able to cope with environmental factors that have changed drastically over the centuries.

      This smooth, fact-filled read takes us on a journey through the complexity of ecosystems, the value of biodiversity and the urgency of environmental issues. It is a crucial book to help us understand the message that the woods are sending us and to restore the magic that trees can generate.
