      Christine S So beautiful. The interweaving of human stories with the spiritual nature of something so common yet meaningful. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/03/24 Full Review Griffin E An incredible story about the interconnected lives of people as told through different trees and the people that tend to them. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/08/24 Full Review BILL M This movie is really about how trees are "useful" to people, as well as a hagiography to Weyerhauser. Far from being inspired by "The Overstory", it is almost devoid of either the science of trees, or the feelings people have as the great forests are being destroyed. Sure, lots of shots of miles of felled trees, but then we learn that hey, Weyerhauser has planted 2 billion trees. We even meet the ex-hippies that planted alot of them. What we don't learn is that by planting them as mono-crops, they are destroying what was once a diverse ecosystem, and merely delaying the inevitable environmental collapse and the soil gets depleted. There is no spirit of investigation, of challenging power (so central to "The Overstory"), and for a film set in the Pacific Northwest, not a word about Native Americans! Rated 1 out of 5 stars 12/31/23 Full Review Christopher M a nice mellow documentary about trees and deforestation. A nice and engaging documentary. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 12/22/23 Full Review hardy c This is a curious documentary. It has plenty of wonderful images of trees and forests. It also has a lot of people with varying relationships with trees. But the whole seems less than the sum of the parts. Yes the bonzai specialist with the psychotic bonzai-killing ex-wife/ex-girlfriend is an interesting person, as is the photographer dedicated to finding exotic trees worldwide and the 95 year old George Weyerhaeuser who was kidnapped as a nine year old and the 76 year old tree planter who built an international tree planting company. But what does all this mean? The doc fails to really integrate these various tree-experiences into a holistic "Grand Meaning." I came away liking trees as much as I did before watching this but cannot say I am more enlightened. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 12/19/23 Full Review DJ J Cleverly crafted film with stories that resonate deeply with our relationship to trees and their key importance for us. Great cinematography.
