A pioneering scientist writes of the benefits of forest bathing and the fascinating ecological and pharmaceutical properties of trees – the inspiration for the documentary Call of the Forest:  The Forgotten Wisdom of Trees

Renowned scientist Diana Beresford-Kroeger presents an unforgettable and highly original work of natural history with The Global Forest.
