About The Wild Trees. Hidden away in foggy, uncharted rain forest valleys in Northern California are the largest and tallest organisms the world has ever sustained–the coast redwood trees, Sequoia sempervirens. Ninety-six percent of the ancient redwood forests have been destroyed by logging, but the untouched fragments that remain are among the great wonders of nature.   And the book is full of ideas – about trees, root systems, computer games, actuarial science, group psychology (one of the characters is a sociologist). But there is a cost to all this plurality Author: Benjamin Markovits.

World Tree grows the Empress tree with our network of farmers in North and Latin America. The farmers provide the land, labor and care of the trees under World Tree’s guidance. The Eco-Tree Program is funded by investors, where every $3, invested allows us to plant 1 acre of trees. And every day, thousands of books sell and thousands more are added from booksellers all over the world. From their gnarled roots and twisted trunks to their far-reaching branches and leaves, trees have long been a popular subject of art and design. Metaphorically, they can represent growth, patience and permanence.
