    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!

    Heiu! The trees souls are beautiful, the bindings are still on : )

    Incredible film, anywhere I can find this with Japanese subtitles? I want to share with Japanese friends.

  13. Avia Salter says:

    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.

    What a wonderful movie! I have a gallery exhibit about trees on kickstarter. Not asking you to check it out or anything, just expressing how amazing trees are :). A friend sent me this video and Iโ€™m really happy he did ๐Ÿ™‚

    Keep up the great productions.

    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.

  21. 206coconutz says:

    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.

  22. Flo Kro says:

    Holy shit, that's one of the most beautiful things I've seen! The cinematography and storytelling are unbelievably good!

  23. RSVBuba says:

    Just WOW!

  24. Giulio Saibene says:

    Incredibly shot and love how the beauty of science was expressed. What a film!

  25. Marco Lissandrello says:

    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.

  26. Tyler Merlin says:

    a tree is an eddy of energy conversion conservation.

  27. Eric Messier says:

    Thank you for this. Living in a world full of mistruths and alernative facts this was beautifully refreshing.

  36. Cameron Frail says:


  37. Ann Maes says:

    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!

    Thank you.

  41. Peter Merchant says:

    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.

    beautiful, thank you

  48. Michael Hendricks says:

    The networks between trees are called mycorrhizal networks. The Wikipedia article about them is pretty good.

  49. grasslandpixxx says:

    i love this video

  50. Mathias Reed says:

    Fantastic work – Please continue to support and release films like these!

  51. Jeff Shaw says:

    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.

  52. Antoine D'Amour says:

    Any idea where to find the soundtrack of this film?

  53. John Doe Jr says:

    Wow, that was super boring.

  54. Justin Roth says:

    If you like this, you might also like the book The Overstory by Richard Powers.

  55. SkolNifer says:

    This film is just wonderful, but damn, the Egyptian Pyramids are over 4000 thousand years old, man it's not hard to check that

  56. Top 10 beast says:

    Like if you love powder

  57. Huy N says:

    Without trees we wouldn't have things to climb on as kids

  58. Woodrow W. says:

    Badass! Beautiful!

  59. Christian Necas says:

    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

  61. mumblerocks77 says:

    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.

  62. Laura Walthers says:

    Beautifully orchestrated and most importantly a stunning production of capturing the sacredness of the forest and trees. Thank you!

  63. Playing Toys in the Sunshine says:

    serene, beautiful cinematography.

  64. Paul Adams says:

    Such an extraordinary production! Thank you for offering the gift of nature to us with such eloquence.

  65. squaredharbors says:

    never put a nail in a tree

  66. Karin Junker says:

    Oh, what a treasure. Thank you !!!

  67. Sebastian Kirppu says:

    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!

  68. Glen Nison says:

    Wow, saw this at Patagonia Soho in NYC. Awesome photography , will forward to lots of my friends!

  69. Ben Speirs says:

    47 people were clearly watching upside-down and thought the dislike button was the like button. It's okay. It happens. We understand.

  70. Just Doi says:

    Wonderfilled. My thanks, Doi

  71. Dominic Cianfarani says:

    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.

  72. Ade Larsen says:

    You will never find a better conservationist than a farmer, fisherman, forester, whaler nor sealer.

  73. Calvin Moody says:

    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.

  74. Joey Smallwood says:

    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.

  75. Joey Smallwood says:

    The large tree cut down at the end is the ultimate "Bambi" moment of nature films.

  76. Mountain Run says:

    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!

  77. TruthPortals Media1 says:

    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!

  78. Hansen Murray says:

    "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

  79. Ali Toylak says:

    thank you patagonia…it was like a meditation…

  80. Alexander George says:

    Congratulations to Jordan Manley & Pantagonia for this visually stunning, awe inspiring and insightful documentary. It won the category of "Best Documentary Short" in the Trenton Film Festival. Congratulations again!

  81. Vikkeh Bee says:

    Tree hugger for life <3 I am in love with the forest !

  82. Kelsey Warren says:

    This moved me so much. Thank you

  83. Tasos Galanis says:


  84. Aaron says:

    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.

  85. Alexa Landres says:

    I saw this when they screened it at the Bozeman International Film Festival in Montana. Beautiful film~

  86. Carlos_Nlb57 says:

    Patagonia – you are producing so many inspiring and beautiful films.

Thank you for raising awareness in such a beautiful manner! Always looking forward to the next film!
