While still in the midst of winter, our thoughts often turn to Spring when we can enjoy planting a garden, flowers, or trees. While waiting for those warmer months to arrive, it is always nice to read a good book to inspire us. I have especially enjoyed the book, Finding the Mother Tree, by Suzanne Simard. This book is about the trees all around us and the scientific evidence that these trees “communicate” with one another beneath the soil. If someone had told me the premise of this book before I had a chance to read it, I might not have believed them. However, after reading this book, I find this theory informative and inspirational. Suzanne Simard is able to impart in a clear and interesting way her detailed scientific knowledge about trees and their mind-boggling ability to communicate with one another. This book should inspire all of us to look at the forests and, additionally, the trees in our own backyards in a totally new light. After reading this book, I have a newfound respect for the precious trees all around us. I encourage everyone to read Finding the Mother Tree to learn about the incredible life and legacy of the trees all around us.
