They are simply there; they accompany us and live with us: trees – in parks and gardens, in the forest and at the side of the road. Nature has no end of time to develop the best solutions. In the end, the method that has mastered all of the challenges it encounters is the one that is used. Trees and the ancient knowledge of Mother Nature offer answers to many of the questions of our time. The goal is finding out the ways that nature has discovered.

THE SECRET LANGUAGE OF TREES enables us all to learn the language of trees. It could be the most beautiful and valuable language we have ever learned and opens up a new refreshing source of inspiration for one’s own life. To read a tree’s diary, to understand its language, opens up a new refreshing source of inspiration for one’s own life.

Diesem modernen Heimatbegriff widmet sich der Servus-Buchverlag. Mit großer Leidenschaft haben wir den gesamten Alpenraum und seine Ausläufer mit seiner faszinierenden Natur, den besonderen Menschen und den vielfältigen Traditionen im Blick. Unsere Bücher machen unsere einzigartige Heimat für jedermann erlebbar. Aber wir wollen auch fast vergessenes Wissen in die Gegenwart holen und regionale Schätze heben. Als Teil der Servus-Familie mit Fernsehsender, Magazinen und Marktplatz möchten wir die Buchmacherkunst in der Gegenwart leben.
