The Hidden Life of Trees illustrates in vivid ways how trees in the forest are social beings. Join us as we use the book as a starting point to open up discussion about how trees interact with each other in similar ways to human beings, exploring and cultivating appreciation for the uncanny parallels between our lives and theirs. NOTE: Feel free to join us even if you have not finished the book.

Facilitator: Sairus Patel is co-editor of Trees of Stanford (trees.stanford.edu) and editorial assistant of Pacific Horticulture magazine, where he serves on the Board of Directors. A life-long tree enthusiast, he gives tree tours of surrounding communities. One of his most rewarding projects was being guest lecturer and tree walk leader for Bio29N, a Stanford course on trees entitled – you guessed it – “Party with Trees!”
