BREN Video Roundup

The Hidden Life of Trees


Like most people, we spend lots of time (way too much time) surfing the web, entranced by various videos. In Video Roundup, we offer some videos from all over the world that we found especially intriguing.

We use trees’ wood and benefit from trees in so many ways, but most people do not think of trees as sentient beings. This week's selection may challenge your views. Suzanne Simard, a scientist based at the University of British Columbia, and Peter Wohlleben, author of the international bestseller, “The Hidden Life of Trees” have devoted their lives to forestry and have been observing the communication between trees for decades.
