Finding the Mother Tree

Community Book Review – Submitted by Julie R.

Finding the Mother Tree by S. Simard is about the personal journey of a UBC scientist, Simard, from her roots raised in a logging family to a renowned tree activist saving the mother trees in ancient forests in British Columbia. I am inspired by her non profit The Mother Project and her discoveries about tree communication in old growth forests. The Mother Tree project is investigating forest renewal practices that will protect biodiversity, carbon storage and forest regeneration as climate changes.
