Haskell visits a dozen trees around the world, exploring the treesʼ connections with webs of fungi, bacterial communities, cooperative and destructive animals and other plants. By unearthing charcoal left by Ice Age humans and petrified redwoods in the Rocky Mountains,Haskell shows how the Earthʼs climate has emerged from exchanges among trees, soil communities and the atmosphere. Now humans have transformed these networks, powering our societies with wood, tending some forests, but destroying others.
