Talking Trees: A nature themed piece illustrated by Matthew Hollings

Talking Trees

The April cover of Reader's Digest is a nature themed piece illustrated by Matthew Hollings.

The article asks, 'Are we Listening to our Forests?' and is about ancient forests, and how they differ from more recent woodlands. Matthew explains "The trees appear to be a sociable species, passing on knowledge to seedlings and helping one another to survive, hence resulting in far longer tree lifespans. The article is principally centred around the ‘Ruheforst’, an ancient forest that lies in the German state of Rhineland-Palatinate along the Belgium border."
