Forest societies

The forest is not simply an accumulation of trees but is itself a society, a community of trees that mutually influence each other, thus giving rise to a whole series of new phenomena that are not the properties of trees alone. Plants adapt not only to new climates and soil conditions but also to each other, as well to specific animals, insects, birds and bacteria that surround them.

The forest is an intricate, delicately balanced house of cards from which no one card can be pulled without bringing the entire structure crashing down around our heads.
