Tree Veneration Society
15_Beneath our Feet
Tree roots are hugely important for water, nutrition, and growth; for communication and sharing among groups of trees, as well as for soil building, erosion control, and pretty much everything that makes forests function, including cooling and even cloud formation. Trees share information, water, and even food through vast networks of roots and microbes. The inspiration for this installation is the work of Peter Wohlleben, whose books have increased our understanding of how trees and roots function, and how essential forests are.
