Do trees have human-like characteristics? That’s the premise of this 45-minute documentary film, which features German forester Peter Wohlleben, and is based on his internationally best-selling book, “The Hidden Life of Trees.” The film will be screened at the Galena Territory Association Owners Club with doors opening at 6, the movie at 7 followed by the presentation. The book and film postulate that the massive, fungal infused network of roots in forests and woodlands are a “wood-wide web,” the “brains of the forest,” through which trees “nurture,” “warn,” and “protect” each other. Following the movie, botanist, ecologist and natural area surveyor Randy Nyboer will lead a Q&A and provide perspective. Complementary popcorn and beer. Free to attend, RSVP’s not required, but seating may be limited.Snow date: March 3.
