- Trees give life to the planet.
- Trees can help save us from climate change.

- Trees need our help and protection.
Along the way, you’ll meet some of the scientists and explorers who helped uncover the mysteries of the world’s oldest living things.

You’ll also learn the science behind trees, including discoveries about how they ‘talk’ and why they are our best allies in the fight to slow down climate change. Explore tree wisdom from many different cultures and some famous and fascinating tree species, brought to life in a vibrant combination of illustrations and text.
Trees are essential to our world. Tree Beings is your guide to appreciating trees through the stories of people who love them. So strap on your hiking boots, and enjoy this informative adventure through the wonderful world of Tree Beings!
