Publisher's Summary

Trees are our constant companions. They stand tall above us, shading us from the sun. They breathe in and out, feeding us oxygen. They weather the storms, protecting us from danger. 

As children we intuitively understand the impact trees have on our lives. We sit beneath their branches, we collect their fallen leaves, we hug their trunks in thanks. But in the process of growing up, we forget these gentle giants. We move to cities, we commute through concrete jungles, and we switch off from nature. 

Opera singer and forester Vincent Karche knows the impact of disconnecting all too well. After years away from his forestry roots, and under the stress of an international singing career, burnout took its toll and he lost his voice. Vincent's healing journey took him to the forests of northern Canada, where he reconnected with trees and recovered not just his voice, but his joy for life.

In Tree Wisdom, Vincent teaches us what a year of healing among the trees can look like. Each lesson mirrors the wondrous way our tall timber friends have learned to thrive through the seasons. Each lesson is simple in nature, a push of the pause button, a chance to re-centre on what matters.

If you can hear the call of nature, willing you back to a simpler time, this audiobook will show you the way.

This isn't what I normally listen to

I don't normally listen to these sorts of books, but this book was written and told well. I really enjoyed listening to it in the car on my way to and from work, and while going through my day to day tasks. I loved this book as short as it was I feel better for having listened to it. I would recommend it for sure.

An enduring love affair with trees shared

Beautifully written eulogy to trees past, present and future, both practical and poetic at the same time.

Enchanting and insightful

Everything I had hoped for and more. Really lovely. Came to me at a time in my life when needed most. Perfect narrator to do it justice. Will definitely revisit. Highly recommend.
