About TREES IN TROUBLE

tnt_about.png

It seemed to happen almost overnight. Thousands of trees started dying unexpectedly in SW Ohio. Cincinnati almost went broke cutting down trees and trying to keep the invasion from damaging property - or worse. The killer was a tiny insect known as the emerald ash borer, a new invasive insect from Asia that will wipe out every ash tree in America...unless we do something about it. First found near Detroit in 2002, emerald ash borers have now infested trees in 35 states, from New Hampshire to South Carolina and as far west as Colorado.

TREES IN TROUBLE: Saving America's Urban Forests tells the compelling story of how one community in SW Ohio confronted their tree crisis and fought the invasive pest by taking action and joining 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.

Designed for audiences of all ages, TREES IN TROUBLE inspires viewers to take action, and points towards first steps.

From the producer of the groundbreaking climate change film, RISING WATERS.

"What an arresting film! Beautifully made and engaging to watch. Trees are an important source of health for humans and nature and thus a vital part of our cities. This is a valuable resource for classroom and community showings across the country."
Mary Evelyn Tucker, School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, Yale University

 "An urgent call to action to protect our treasured urban street and park trees from extinction"
Professor Emeritus of Geography, University of Massachusetts-Amherst

 "Trees in Trouble clearly makes the case for the priceless value of city trees, the threats they face from exotic insects accidentally brought in to our cities, and the need for municipalities to take action. City officials, local tree committees, and interested citizens would all benefit from viewing this film."
Amy Grotta, Associate Professor of Forest Ecosystems and Society, Oregon State University
