Call of the Forest: The Forgotten Wisdom of Trees Overview

A documentary commenting on the state of the world's old growth forests, Call of the Forest: The Forgotten Wisdom of Trees, serves as a reminder of the planet's and people's necessary connection to the world's trees. That trees provide emotional and physical benefits to those ever in its presence.

As Canadian-Irish scientist and author Diana Beresford-Kroeger travels around the world, speaking with the scientists, foresters and activists working to protect and replenish the world's northern forests, we learn that trees are our salvation in maintaining our complex network of biodiversity, protecting us from the detriments of climate change and preserving our fragile water systems. We must do all we can to preserve and replant them.
