Reply Anthropomorphic facsimile says: January 31, 2019 at 2:08 am Exquisite. Reply Tiffany Young says: January 31, 2019 at 4:39 am Absolutely perfect. I loved how these incredible individuals have connected their souls and spirits to trees in some sort of way and make us think about taking time to appreciate the purpose of these silent giants. Beautiful film! Reply M.D. Alekhin says: January 31, 2019 at 9:41 am Heiu! The trees souls are beautiful, the bindings are still on : ) Reply Johan Bouet says: January 31, 2019 at 12:41 pm One love <3 Reply Joel Fuller says: January 31, 2019 at 1:00 pm Incredible film, anywhere I can find this with Japanese subtitles? I want to share with Japanese friends. Reply Avia Salter says: January 31, 2019 at 1:58 pm Trees are our ancestors, the giants of our past, the cleansers and balancers, stabilisers and protectors for the earth; the fire of the sun in our hearts and hearths, cool shade, fruits, the cloth of green over the rocks, the jewels in the desert, even hidden resources under the ice. When the elder trees in a forest are cut down the whole forest loses its direction – the young trees have no ancestor trees to learn from, and when large areas are cut down the continuity and connection between them all – the family – is broken. This film is beautiful and full of wisdom from those who understand. Planting trees is the most important thing we can do but we cannot replant the divine life-source in a forest. It would be like expecting severed limbs, or false limbs grown in a test tube, to regrow into a living body with a soul; no, that is impossible. We are causing our own destruction on this planet. Thank you Patagonia for your vision. Reply Roy Taylor says: January 31, 2019 at 5:14 pm Beautiful ! Simply beautiful ! Many thanks to you ! Hope this film will sow… Reply Viridis Graduate Institute says: January 31, 2019 at 5:40 pm This film is required viewing for students at Viridis Graduate Institute: Ecopsychology and Environmental Humanities.

Not asking you to check it out or anything, just expressing how amazing trees are :). A friend sent me this video and I’m really happy he did 🙂 Keep up the great productions. Reply cravenz12 says: January 31, 2019 at 10:51 pm The picture in the background at 03:39 is from an animationmovie i saw years ago. Does anybody now the name of it? It's this beatiful movie with a dear in the forrest, escaping the lava. Reply 206coconutz says: February 1, 2019 at 1:30 am I've watched this three times so far. Kudos to all that contributed, directed, and produced this feast for the eyes, ears, and heart. It continues to captivate and resonate. Thanks, Dad, for introducing me to the power, beauty and wonders of nature when I was just a sprout. R.I.P. Reply Flo Kro says: February 1, 2019 at 12:46 pm Holy shit, that's one of the most beautiful things I've seen! The cinematography and storytelling are unbelievably good! Reply RSVBuba says: February 1, 2019 at 2:46 pm Just WOW! Reply Giulio Saibene says: February 1, 2019 at 5:28 pm Incredibly shot and love how the beauty of science was expressed. What a film! Reply Marco Lissandrello says: February 2, 2019 at 1:18 am The best film ever. We humans can't understand yet what's means "be a tree", we needs more and more more levels of awakening and consciousness and again more and more lives after the ours right now. Reply Tyler Merlin says: February 2, 2019 at 1:33 am a tree is an eddy of energy conversion conservation.

Living in a world full of mistruths and alernative facts this was beautifully refreshing. Reply Cameron Frail says: February 5, 2019 at 12:06 am wow Reply Ann Maes says: February 5, 2019 at 5:03 am But the fact we are appreciating this documentary now, gives me hope that we are learning the importance of living in harmony with Mother Earth. Awesome video! Reply Dan S says: February 5, 2019 at 7:35 pm Visually stunning, an utterly moving piece of cinema. Thank you. 🙏 Reply Tams80 says: February 6, 2019 at 11:06 am Stunning. Reply Chris O. says: February 7, 2019 at 4:17 am Thank you. Reply Peter Merchant says: February 7, 2019 at 5:38 am Beautiful film about these wondrous trees and how they communicate – and about some of the people around the world who don't just ski through these special old growth forests – they feel real connection to them. To learn that bristlecone pines live for 5,000 years and have been on the earth for 70 million years as a species is extraordinary. Death is but a transfer of energy in a forest. Find your own tree. The soundtrack and cinematography here is fabulous, but the ideas are just as wonderful if not more so.

That was incredibly beautiful. My life is better for having seen this. Make a grown man cry why don't you 🙂 Reply Bryce New says: February 9, 2019 at 2:16 pm AMAZING!!! Yes all caps is appropriate 😀 Super engaged by this fine production. Cinematography is OMG! Great story and editing. LoveLoveLove. Thanks to all who made this happen. Keep up the great work y'all x Reply Olivia Hogben says: February 9, 2019 at 4:41 pm beautiful, thank you Reply Michael Hendricks says: February 9, 2019 at 8:55 pm The networks between trees are called mycorrhizal networks. The Wikipedia article about them is pretty good. Reply grasslandpixxx says: February 10, 2019 at 2:54 pm i love this video Reply Mathias Reed says: February 11, 2019 at 2:25 pm Fantastic work – Please continue to support and release films like these! Reply Jeff Shaw says: February 11, 2019 at 10:09 pm The Bristlecone Ancient Forest in CA, is an amazing place if your in CA and your heading up the Eastern Sierra's on RT 395. The turn off is before you get to Bishop. The road is long and uphill, but the view is fantastic at the top. The Trees are not that large, but they are amazing to see. The visitor center is brand new and sustainable, the old VC burned down a few years back. Reply Antoine D'Amour says: February 12, 2019 at 6:41 pm Any idea where to find the soundtrack of this film? Reply John Doe Jr says: February 12, 2019 at 9:18 pm Wow, that was super boring.

Beautiful! Reply Christian Necas says: February 16, 2019 at 10:06 pm Extremely well produced and thought provoking documentary. This isn't what I expected to see, but I sure appreciate that I watched it through. Very well done Reply miriam kucera says: February 17, 2019 at 8:39 pm I’Am Tree Hugger Reply mumblerocks77 says: February 18, 2019 at 2:33 am I love the artists and athletes that produce this kind of stuff. However, call me crazy, but I think that Patagonia is just a large, garment manufacturing company with really clever but misleading marketing. They might donate 1% to environmental groups, but that is commonplace amongst corporations nowadays – and arguably serves more as good PR than genuine philanthropy. Subaru promises LOVE and sells you cars with pictures of animal shelters, and patagonia is doing the same thing. Here's the bottom line in my view – if Patagonia executives cared about the planet as much as they claim they do – they would shut down their factories – because there is no way you can produce and distribute millions of pounds of clothing each year without irreversibly harming the planet. But, despite their messaging about re-using the clothing you already have and buying vintage pieces with Worn Wear, their production has continued to grow – as seen by the 4x(!) growth in revenue in the last 10 years. That's not sustainable, no matter what way you spin it. Reply Laura Walthers says: February 19, 2019 at 10:54 am Beautifully orchestrated and most importantly a stunning production of capturing the sacredness of the forest and trees. Thank you! Reply Playing Toys in the Sunshine says: February 20, 2019 at 6:13 am serene, beautiful cinematography. Reply Paul Adams says: February 22, 2019 at 10:36 am Such an extraordinary production! Thank you for offering the gift of nature to us with such eloquence.

Reply Sebastian Kirppu says: February 28, 2019 at 8:23 pm A fantastic film about the forest ecosystem. To bad it is threatened by human exploitation. We have to save the last remains of old growth forests in the world starting right now! Reply Glen Nison says: February 28, 2019 at 10:29 pm Wow, saw this at Patagonia Soho in NYC. Awesome photography , will forward to lots of my friends! Reply Ben Speirs says: March 4, 2019 at 5:25 am 47 people were clearly watching upside-down and thought the dislike button was the like button. It's okay. It happens. We understand. Reply Just Doi says: March 5, 2019 at 10:17 pm Wonderfilled. My thanks, Doi Reply Dominic Cianfarani says: March 5, 2019 at 10:27 pm That was unexpected. I love the flow, adrenaline, ephemerality and tricksiness of snowboarding, and mountain biking, but also the deep peace of trees and woodworking, and the connection to nature when observing birds and wildlife. This film hints to me at how we can seek to merge those disparate sensations into a convergent pursuit that is both fulfilling and sustainable. Reply Ade Larsen says: March 7, 2019 at 5:19 am You will never find a better conservationist than a farmer, fisherman, forester, whaler nor sealer. Reply Calvin Moody says: March 12, 2019 at 2:33 pm I had a tree in my hometown that I deeply connected with. I still remember the day I drove past and it had been cut down for suburban construction. Reply Joey Smallwood says: March 12, 2019 at 4:42 pm Five minutes into watching this film, I realized it was the best film I will ever see. I mean, maybe I will see a better one but I'm not holding my breath. I immediately watched this film twice, not just because it is filmed in BC, where I fell in love with trees. Also, because there is uphill and downhill powderskiing in huge amounts. For me, amazing. Reply Joey Smallwood says: March 12, 2019 at 4:47 pm The large tree cut down at the end is the ultimate "Bambi" moment of nature films. Reply Mountain Run says: March 13, 2019 at 12:15 pm This film is awesome and about time, we're reading the Hidden Life of Tree's and all of a sudden there is a film saying the same thing… consciousness is shifting, people are waking up and trees are so so important. Thank You Patagonia for educating and inspiring. Get it into schools! Reply TruthPortals Media1 says: March 17, 2019 at 2:00 pm We must unplug from our materialism, movies, and city dwelling, so we can wake up, reconnect, and protect that which is most precious…trees and children! Reply Hansen Murray says: March 30, 2019 at 12:17 am "Trees will never say 'I don't like you'". I just wanted to watch some tree surfing and now it's raining on my face wtf Reply Ali Toylak says: March 31, 2019 at 1:45 pm thank you patagonia…it was like a meditation… Reply Alexander George says: April 2, 2019 at 12:00 pm Congratulations to Jordan Manley & Pantagonia for this visually stunning, awe inspiring and insightful documentary.

Thank you Reply Tasos Galanis says: May 13, 2019 at 9:27 pm Amazing Reply Aaron says: May 25, 2019 at 9:48 pm Possibly the best, or perhaps most sublime, documentary I have seen. The cinematography is a real work of art; the way the stories of cultures that lived in the forests for millenia and their wisdom is conveyed delicately and with masterful nuance. I would say the cinematography is on par if not better than the BBC's Planet Earth series. Reply Alexa Landres says: August 1, 2019 at 6:26 pm I saw this when they screened it at the Bozeman International Film Festival in Montana. Beautiful film~ Reply Carlos_Nlb57 says: August 2, 2019 at 10:16 am Go Vegan and save trees. Reply BD Matzek says: September 4, 2019 at 5:02 am Great work Patagonia! My secret life in forests.
