Community Screening: The Hidden Life of Trees

This free community screening is in partnership with SOS Trees Coalition, an organization committed to protecting the green infrastructure of the urban forest.

Thursday, May 30, 7 PM
Film: The Hidden Life of Trees
Director: Jörg Adolph & Jan Haft
Year: 2020
Runtime: 101 minutes
Country: Germany
Rating: PG

When Peter Wohlleben published his book The Hidden Life of Trees in 2015, he quickly entered bestseller lists. The forester wrote vividly about his experience that trees are able to communicate with each other, a thesis explored here.

SOS Trees Coalition educates folks on how the trees that grow within the city are interconnected networks that provide a much-needed ecosystem service to human populations. There are social, psychological, recreational and economic benefits to urban forests, not to mention carbon sequestration, reduction of the heat island effect, air filtration (pollution reduction), and improved aesthetics. Through educational activities, SOS Trees Coalition promotes public understanding and appreciation of the urban forest.

Presented in German with English subtitles.
This screening is free and open to the public.
