4.0 out of 5 stars Varied perspective... April 13 2014
Verified Purchase
Everyone loves trees. That statement is not in dispute.

However, everyone has a different perspective of their link with the trees. This goes beyond the obvious - we require trees and forests in order to survive.

The practical - where do you think paper, wood, homes, furniture, etc., come from?
The logger - this is my job, how I provide for my family. Jobs today are difficult to find and education and training don't always make alternative employment possibilities feasible, or attainable. You are concerned about me cutting forests, when whole forests can be destroyed by a careless person smoking a cigarette, or not properly putting out their campfire...?
The environmentalist - we are killing the future for ourselves, and our children, if we keep cutting down our forests.
The corporation - very much like oil, trees are part of the equation that keeps the mechanism - economy - going.

What isn't answered is how do we meet the needs of all participants and still protect our environment? What are the alternatives?

Whether it is trees, oil, fishing, or hunting - there are many questions created. Who has the right to these practices? Should they continue?

Our eco-system is fragile. We have already changed our world and are seeing the effects of those changes everyday. Industrialization (pavement/asphalt, taller buildings, expanding cities, pollution), millions of people, and larger populations of animals for food, all contribute to our dilemma.

So, what are the answers? How do we find a balance, when everything is so out of balance? This movie doesn't answer the questions, but it does examine the individual point of view.
