Call of the Forest
The Forgotten Wisdom of TreesDVD - 2016
We cut down billions of trees every year - today only five percent of the worlds old growth forests remain intact. Yet trees are one of this planets most significant creators of food, new medicines, and oxygen. Forests hold the answer to many of the worlds problems; from climate change to human health and well-being. Visionary scientist and acclaimed author Diana Beresford-Kroeger explores the science, folklore, and history of this essential eco-system reminding us that when we improve our profound human connection to woodlands we can, not only, restore our health - we can restore our planet. From the sacred sugi and cedar forests of Japan, the ancient Raheen Wood of Ireland, and the walnut and redwood trees of America, to the great boreal forest of Canada, Call of the Forest tells the amazing stories behind the history and legacy of these ancient forests while also explaining the science of trees and the irreplaceable roles they play in protecting and feeding the planet.
