Can trees really communicate with each other or with other plants?

Melina Sempill Watts’ debut novel Tree tells over 200 years of history in California’s Santa Monica Mountains from the perspective of a California Live Oak. The book explores complex issues of mortality, relationships and ecology as the tree takes on a human perspective.
