Songs of Trees: Stories from Nature’s Great Connectors by George Haskell 

There is a poetry in being silent in nature. George Haskell channels it in this beautiful look at ten individual trees. Visiting them on a regular basis, Haskell notices that the forest is never silent. He takes you there and introduces you to these individual grand beauties. The chapters are portraits, the trees become good friends. Haskell taught me how to look at the world differently with this gorgeous book, politics, ethics, climate science, biology and poetry form a beautiful ecosystem in these pages.
