The one-hour documentary uses archival and new footage, and aerial views to tell the story of the eastern white pine: what pre-settlement pines looked like in the primeval forest; the central role white pines played in America's founding and history; and the pine's current status and ecological significance. You may be surprised to learn how prominent a role the tree played in this country's formation.
Further, the white pine's importance to wildlife and people is related by three experts in their respective fields: famed Minnesota wildlife biologist Lynn Rogers; Trinity College neuroscientist Professor Susan Masino; and nationally known old-growth forest expert Bob Leverett.
Local screenings have been held in Massachusetts and Connecticut; if your organization would like to schedule a showing of the film (followed by a Q&A session) in the central New England area, contact us (see Contact page).
