As something becomes more complex, it becomes able to perform more functions with fewer dedicated components. Following from this attribute of complexity, a tree is seen as carrying the least number of dedicated organs compared to its innumerable functions. Tree is a trim tab. The book presents 50 lessons for the entire humanity that are inspired by the invisible technology of the trees. The invisible technologies- deemed essential for the performance of the trees- are illustrated in a visual language familiar to the readers.
