How to Be More Tree
We learn about the importance of forward-planning from the Chinese bamboo tree, which seemingly doesn't grow at all for the first four years of its life, before shooting 80 feet upwards in six weeks; in those four years, it is in fact growing an amazingly strong underground root network to support sudden growth. And acacias, who look out for each other by producing a gas when they're being nibbled on by herbivores to warn their nearby friends.
From the importance of patience, to drawing strength from others, to weathering the storm, to dealing with life's most persistent irritants - this is a celebration of the heroes of the forest, and an essential companion for dipping into when we need a little inspiration.
