Film featuring forest ecology professor Suzanne Simard and forester and bestselling author Peter Wohlleben.
Fires are destroying vast swatches of rainforest in the Amazon region and on Indonesia’s Kalimantan island, even trees in Germany are under severe threat from heat damage and bark-beetle infestation. It is of eminent importance to understand the precious presence of trees on our planet.
Trees have feelings. They can feel pain, but can also have emotions, such as fear.
There is in fact friendship among trees.
Trees talk, know family ties and care for their young? Is this too fantastic to be true? Dr Suzanne Simard from the University of British Columbia, Canada and widely-known German forester and author Peter Wohlleben have been observing and investigating the communication between trees over decades. Their findings are astounding. The documentary Intelligent Trees features the main observations that are covered in Peter Wohlleben’s book such as the stump that has been kept alive by it’s neighboring trees, the old tree-couple that looks after each other, the Mother Trees that suckle their offspring, etc…
Special about this film is, however, that it goes beyond observations and claims, but match them with the latest underlying Forest Science.
