Trees are truly amazing. Sure, they change carbon dioxide into oxygen, which is pretty important if you like breathing, but did you know they also build networks with other trees, can take action when they are being threatened, and have all sorts of clever ways to carry on growing even when they are knocked flat? Trees have been around for nearly 400 million years – a good amount of time to accumulate some serious wisdom – and they’ve become masters at adapting, surviving, and thriving.
In our complex and often confusing human existence, it’s not always easy to keep a cool head and a happy heart. If something is getting under your bark, or you’re suffering from a few snapped branches, or you just need reminding to enjoy the feeling of the sun on your foliage, we hope you’ll find the inspiration in these pages to help deal with life’s bumps and bruises. So sit back, let the wind gently rustle your canopy, and discover how to be more tree.
