How to Read a Tree

Tristan Gooley

From Shelf: 🌏 There's No Planet B 🌍

'Trees are keen to tell us so much. They'll tell us about the land, the water, the people, the animals, the weather and time. And they will tell us about their lives, the good bits and bad. Trees tell a story but only to those who know how to read it.'

THE LATEST GUIDE TO THE HIDDEN MEANING OF NATURE FROM THE NATURAL NAVIGATOR, TRISTAN GOOLEY Readers are LOVING How to Read a Tree:'I could write a book about this book. After the first five pages I knew my forest hiking was already permanently changed. After five more I began ordering copies for some fellow tree-loving friends' 'Very interesting and beautifully written' 'An enjoyable read full of fascinating stuff' 'I absolutely loved this book! I've read several of his other books before and this one might be my favourite. Gooley is the master of providing a way to examine patterns' -------------- Do two trees ever appear identical? No, but why? Every small difference is a clue. Each tree we meet is filled with signs that reveal secrets about the life of that tree and the landscape we stand in. The clues are easy to spot when you know what to look for, but remain invisible to most people.In How to Read a Tree, you'll discover the simple principles that explain the shapes and patterns you can see in trees and what they mean. And you'll learn rare skills that can be applied every time you pass a tree, whether you are in a town or a wilder spot.As the author of the international bestsellers The Walker's Guide and How to Read Water, Tristan Gooley knows how to uncover the phenomena worth looking for. He has been instructing people in the art of reading trees for two decades and this book includes signs that will not be found in any other book in the world.Once you have learned to see these things it is impossible to unsee them. We will never look at a tree the same way again.----------------- 'An important book and a pleasure to read.' - Raynor Winn, author of The Salt Path'You will never look at a tree in the same way again after reading this mesmerising book. Gooley drops learning as lightly as blossom falls in spring.' - John Lewis-Stempel'Tristan Gooley has done trees the greatest service.' - Isabella Tree'Will undoubtedly leave you with a deeper appreciation of trees...your country walks will never be quite the same again' - Daily Mail
