Raised in the hardy forest communities of British Columbia, scientist Suzanne Simard overturned conventional beliefs in proving that trees and plants are connected underground by an immense web of fungal mycelia, at the centre of which lie the Mother Trees: the mysterious, powerful entities that sustain the forest. She joined Sophy Roberts live on Stage in London to tell the story of a lifetime spent uncovering startling truths about trees and shares what we can learn from them.
