Trees in Trouble: Saving America’s Urban Forests tells the compelling story of how one community in Southwest Ohio confronted their tree crisis and fought the invasive pest by taking action and working together. Through partnerships with scientists, city officials and everyday citizens, this community was able to fight the pest and protect their urban forests for future generations. The film also explores the rich history of urban forestry in the United States and the exciting new research linking human health and trees. Our Planet – Forests is a National Geographic documentary which examines the fragile interdependence that exists between forests’ wide variety of residents, including bald eagles, hunting dogs and Siberian tigers.
