La description

The story of a single tree, from the moment the seed is released from its cone until, more than 500 years later, it lies on the forest floor as a nurse log, giving life to ferns, mosses, and hemlocks, even as its own life is ending. Updated and revised to reflect the effects of climate change on forests, now with a new foreword by Peter Wohlleben, internationally bestselling author of The Hidden Life of Trees and The Inner Life of Animals.

"From the tiny seed of a single Douglas-fir, David Suzuki and Wayne Grady have grown a wonderful book, learned but lovely, thorough but terse. It’s as big as all life."
—David Quammen, author of The Song of the Dodo and The Tangled Tree

"Read Tree. You will find wonder, magic and awe instead of the usual flight-or-fight responses when you read about our ailing natural world. David Suzuki and Wayne Grady have hit exactly the right note."
Globe and Mail

"This book is both a touching look at a single tree and an articulate testimony to nature’s cyclic power."
Publishers Weekly

"This happy melding of history, natural history, and biography is further enhanced by Robert Bateman’s fine illustrations to create an instructive and graceful look at the interconnectedness of life."

"Tree: A Life Story is highly recommended. It is genuinely a celebration of the wonders of nature and how perfectly its constituents interact and depend on one another."
