Have you gone forest bathing recently? Heard what trees are saying to each other? In Forest Talk: How Trees Communicate, scientists from diverse backgrounds reveal what trees say to us and to each other. Trees and forests are essential to all life on Earth. We need forests to help maintain the cycles that keep our air and water healthy. Trees and forests need us to protect them from destruction and degradation. Investigations and data collection by biologists, ecologists, foresters, and other scientists help protect trees. You can help too. Learn how to listen when trees talk.
