Did you know that substances found in wood can be used to protect against lifestyle diseases, or that the construction techniques used by ants provide a model for building passive houses without insulation material and technical systems? Or how the woodpecker in the forest points the way to the energy sources of the future?

Nature is full of surprises – and it is also the best teacher. This book combines natural wisdom with the latest research and examples of how to apply them. It is a call to let trees back into our lives again, so that we can benefit from their powers.

Anyone who loves trees will find this book a reliable guide and a source of practical suggestions for their whole life.

 


»In the end, all of our developments show that it is better to work with nature than against it.«
Erwin Thoma
