Praise

Praise for The Global Forest:

“On occasion, someone understands a subject so deeply that information is transmuted into wisdom.  This book marks one of those occasions – it is rich and hopeful and compelling.” —Bill McKibben
 
“Beautifully written . . .this book delves into environmental sciences with a fresh perspective.” —New Scientist
  
“Beresford-Kroeger is among the world’s experts in forest medicine . . . She hopes that by educating people about the beneficial effect of forest environments on human health, it will encourage forest repopulation, which will, in turn, counteract the effects of global warming and pollution.” —The Globe and Mail (Canada)

“An important book with many significant insights into the interconnectedness of trees and other life forms.” —Orion Magazine

Praise for Diana Beresford-Kroeger:

“A maverick!” — Richard Powers

“Who speaks for the trees, speaks for all nature. Diana Beresford-Kroeger is one of the rare individuals who can accomplish this outwardly complex and difficult translation from the nonhuman to human realm. The essays of The Global Forest are a beautiful and poetic tribute to their subject, based on wide-ranging scientific knowledge.” —Edward O. Wilson
  
“[Beresford-Kroeger’s] books have been a call to humanity to treat trees with the awe due to immensely resourceful creatures that we still know so little about.” —Richard Powers, Conjunctions
 
“In her youth in Ireland Diana Beresford-Kroeger received an extraordinary and unique education in traditional Celtic plant lore. At university in Canada she specialized in biochemistry and merged what she learned and observed into her signature studies of trees, augmented by First Nation forest wisdom.” —Annie Proulx

“Often these kinds of brilliant pioneers are outliers who don’t play by the rules.” — Ben Rawlence, author of The Treeline: The Last Forest and the Future of Life on Earth
