A look at how forestry effects the lives of the residents a fictional mountain town.
1 January 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A great film, especially in today's economic setting. All of the characters are revealing of what is really happening in the world of forestry, how "loving trees" does not necessarily mean that they all must be protected - a very unique movie that examines the industry, and its impact, from a number of perspectives. Although the story is fictional, I found myself totally hooked from the opening scene. I do consider myself to be an environmentalist, and I had never really given enough thought to the reliance that entire towns can have on forestry, how trees are literally the lifeblood for so many small towns. Highly recommended.
