A Time For Trees

What was once debated is now undeniable. The planet is changing.

Places we once called home will soon be unlivable. The question is, can we reverse it?

For millions of years, trees and humans have coexisted in a symbiotic dance. We’ve lived alongside them, found shelter under their branches, eaten their fruit, and warmed ourselves from their fallen remains. In exchange, trees have taken only the life-sustaining carbon dioxide that we exhale.

We give one another life, and our destinies are very much intertwined.

The evidence is now clear that the planting and preservation of trees - along with other data-driven carbon capture methods - will play a vital role in solving the global climate crisis. Countries around the world have come together with the shared goal of planting one trillion trees by the year 2030.

If done effectively (and that is a BIG "if"), this has the potential to suck up nearly 830 billion tons of heat-trapping carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. That’s about how much carbon pollution we humans have spewed in the past 25 years.

But there are vast challenges facing this massive tree-planting effort... From discouragingly low sapling survival rates, to planting the wrong types of trees, to human greed interfering - as it often does - in well-intended efforts to better the world for generations to come.

Like everything worth doing, there will be hard fought victories and game-changing discoveries, along with unavoidable challenges, setbacks and potentially even "bad players" along the way.

And our award-winning film team will explore every single bit of it.

We are traveling around the world, on a mission to document the heroes of this fast growing trees movement. From daring conservationists protecting the temperate rainforests of British Columbia to an intrepid group of young ecologists who are regenerating the Yucatan jungles in Mexico to a brave group of women in Kenya who are rallying together local villages to create a tree-planting army...

The world may seem tumultuous... divided... even hopeless. But as we speak, people around the world are coming together to restore and protect these silent green giants that control our fate.

No matter who or where you are, we all have something at stake here.

This is our story. As a species.

As a planet.

Take Action

Creating independent films without the support of the studios or mainstream media is challenging and expensive. But we’re up to the task, because we know the importance of championing these stories that may otherwise go untold. Not-for-profit films like the Trees Movie must be created with utmost integrity and respect.  

This is where you come in.
