"Just One Tree", short film from The Outsidely

A new website from Australia, "The Outsidely",  set up to work on climate change offers a short film, “Just One Tree’, by Ramsay Taplin.

The film presents the tree as nature’s major tool for balancing the right amount of carbon in the atmosphere.

He also discusses the depletion of insects.

The bad news is cutting down of forests, in Australia, and in Brazil in the Amazon under a new right wing leadership.

The one question I would have is, large trees too close to a house can fall on them in storms.

When we played back yard softball in my childhood, there was a large poplar tree that knocked down a lot of home runs.  Then it was struck by lightning in 1986 and barely missed the house.
