Director Statement

To The Trees is a call to action, a dedication, a promise, and a militant apology.
Beyond the redwoods, it's an invitation to consider where we stand as not only a place to start in our battle for climate justice, but a place to protect. From this microcosm, our understanding of and our love for nature may expand.
