The Songs of Trees by David George Haskell. Published by Viking

Haskell embarks on a world-wide journey to visit a dozen trees and examine how they fit into their own unique ecosystems and the danger they face, from global climate change to the increasing demand for land for homes and agriculture. Just when the future seems bleak, the author examines the life of individual trees planted in cities and other unlikely locations that seem to be thriving despite their hostile habitats. Readers will come away with a renewed appreciation of trees, the magnificent beings we share our planet with and sadly, have come to take for granted
