Spectacular blend of history, botany and story.
One of a series of short films produced by KERA Television in Dallas over the past few years, this one by veteran filmmaker Rob Tranchin. A lot more details here — and frankly, the video quality is vastly superior at KERA’s site — go view the film there.
I hope it’s available on DVD for classroom use, especially around Dallas, soon.
Hundreds of historic trees grace America’s cities and countryside. We could use a dozen more films this good to tell their stories.
