Discover how all trees can mirror us, teach us and heal us.

As author Alice Peck reflected on the maple tree in her backyard, she began to notice and then study its intricacies and changes.

This became her regular meditation and inspiration. In Be More Tree, Alice shares what she has learnt from that maple tree, and from the trees all around us.

Every tree tells a complete and ongoing story - from its powerful taproots to the birds that alight on its fragile high branches.

Trees reflect our lives through their perseverance and seasonal rhythms - always changing yet consistent.

They evolve along a much more protracted timetable than humans.

Like us, trees feel and react to their environment, and communicate with us in subtle but distinct ways.

Here Alice explores trees from four perspectives: their roots - wisdom and understanding; their branches - symbols and rituals; their leaves - healing and science; and their seeds - transformation and spirituality.

All of these elements show us how, although they live outside us, trees offer a path to our inner selves.

From the Bodhi Tree to the Garden of Eden, the Druids to forest monks, medicines to tyre swings - people have always received physical, psychological and spiritual sustenance from trees.

Filled with insights from botany to poetry, ecology to mythology and herbalism to sacraments, Be More Tree explores the ways these grounded yet soaring entities can steady and move us, teach and transform us, inspire and comfort us.
