WI Public Radio has a show aired for 70 yrs called A Chapter a Day-- books are read in a daily half hour presentation. The current offering is The Hidden Lives of Trees by Peter Wohlleben.---absolutely fascinating....You can "tune in" live daily at 12:30 CT on-line or listen at your leisure to the cached episodes here: https://www.wpr.org/programs/archives/chapter-a-day


An amazing fact discussed today, fer instance: among beech trees, one making less sugar due to it's position in more shade can get sugar from a neighboring beech in a more privileged position with the help of the fungi growing among their roots, allowing communication. (!!)


It's a nice break for coffee and.. while relaxing after chores in the garden or the barnyard.

<sigh>. I really wish this forum's software had a "like" button instead of that "you must spread some reputation around first ---"

Thanks for the link.

I got that book a couple of years ago. Absolutely one of the best books I have read in ages. Soooo much fascinating, eye-opening information to absorb. Definitely worth getting the book as a keeper and using it for repeated reference.

So glad to read your thread regarding how the various important functions
of tree are sometimes know and unknown to the general public ! Where we live, trees are being decimated at an alarming rate by rabid development ! ... There's just no stopping it ! ... The vital,, life giving functions of forests lands and critter habitat mean nothing! ... Sadly we are losing so much of the natural world due to acute ignorance! ... Old Sgt. Lamar says so !

Yea, loss of habitat is the biggest problem facing MotherNature. The TreeHuggers all get bent out of shape because we're gunna use up 1000 sq miles for landfills in the next century, but ignore the fact that we lose 1500 sq mi a year. to the bulldozer for strip malls & parking lots.
