BOOK REVIEW: THE HIDDEN LIFE OF TREES BY PETER WOHLLEBEN
A book by the German forester Peter Wohlleben explains clearly why we at Green Steps focus our educational efforts on trees. Only those who know trees are able to protect them. Only those who know about their ecosystem services, which are vital for us, can appreciate them.
