Welcome!


To work with trees is my life. I was born in 1964 in the city of Bonn/Germany, studied forestry and spent over twenty years as a civil servant in the forestry commission. I gave up my job because I wanted to put my ideas of ecology into practice, and I now run an environmentally friendly municipal piece of woodland in the village of Huemmel. I hold lectures and seminars and have written books on subjects pertaining to woodlands and nature protection so you can accompany me through the forests of my homeland and the whole world.

My book about the hidden life of trees will soon be available in several languages (to be completed):

The Hidden Life of Trees: What They Feel, How They Communicate - Discoveries from a Secret World will publish worldwide in English in September 2016.


Greystone Books, in partnership with the David Suzuki Institute, will publish in North America and the UK in September 2016, and distribute in other English language territories worldwide.
