Trees in 4 Minutes - 

Years ago I went on a solo backpacking trip through Big Sur. It was during a time in the year when there were few other people to see or hear. When I got to camp, I was surrounded by the forest. It was just me and this vast surrounding living organism. All I heard was the wind blowing through the trees, the birds chirping in the distance, and the constant sound of the flowing river. I didn’t feel like I belonged. I felt like an outsider. I felt in a way like the forest was alive talking to itself, and I was there in its way. Since that trip I’ve always wondered if there was more to the forest, to the trees than I knew. 




Call of the Forest: The Forgotten Wisdom of Trees -

The Tree Sisters Million Trees Campaign - 

What if womankind decided to usher in a new identity for humanity? What if we collectively chose to evolve into a restorer species - recognizing the privilege of caretaking our world back into balance? 

Alone, a woman is a force of nature. Together, with our hearts united around the world that sustains us, we can unleash a force of love that turns our world around.




Do trees communicate? - 

In this real-life model of forest resilience and regeneration, Professor Suzanne Simard shows that all trees in a forest ecosystem are interconnected, with the largest, oldest, "mother trees" serving as hubs. The underground exchange of nutrients increases the survival of younger trees linked into the network of old trees.
