Songs Of Trees: Stories from Nature’s Great Connectors 

David George Haskell’s The Songs of Trees offering a contemplative reflection on the biological connections that underpin life. The author, who has won acclaim for his eloquent writing and deep engagement with the natural world, weaves scientific exploration with lyrical prose to explore the complex networks surrounding all species, from humans to microbes and fungi.  

Through repeated visits to a dozen trees in diverse locations – cities like Manhattan, forests in the Amazon, North America, and the boreal regions, as well as areas facing environmental challenges – Haskell unveils the profound interplay between human history, ecology, and the lives of trees. Haskell’s work serves as a reminder that, in a world marked by barriers, life’s essence and allure emerge from the intricate dance between relationships and interdependence.
