Synopsis

Returning to her roots in the rugged mountain wilderness of British Columbia, Canada, an award-winning war photographer and former tree planter turns the camera on herself and a community of tree planters who amidst grueling conditions and emotional difficulties are bringing back the forest one tree at a time. Driven by the perseverance and vulnerability of its subjects as much as by the harsh beauty of the landscape, Forest for the Trees is a visually and emotionally arresting film about photography, tree planting and the human condition.
