The extraordinary adaptive and resilient capacities of forests are the result of evolutionary processes that have lasted millions of years. But these skills may not be enough, in the face of the sudden changes to which we have been subjecting our common home for a century now. The stories that Vacchiano tells speak of plants, woods, forests, but above all they talk about us, of how to maintain or restore the invisible benefits that forests give to our lives.
