Plymouth Urban Tree Festival: The Hidden Life of Trees (PG)

Tuesday 16th May 2023

On Tuesday 16 May, join us at Plymouth Arts Cinema for a special screening of The Hidden Life of Trees (PG). The screening will be introduced by Matt Underwood on behalf of Plymouth Tree Partnership. Matt is an arboriculturist and volunteer tree warden, and one of the organisers of Plymouth Urban Tree Festival.

Dir. Jorg Adolph, Jan Haft, Germany, 2020, in English and German with some subtitles, 96 mins. With. Peter Wohlleben.

Branching off of his best-selling book, renowned forester and writer Peter Wohlleben guides us through his most precious ideas and understanding of how trees work in this enlightening documentary. Presenting biological and academic expertise with matter-of-fact candour, Peter inspires us to really see the forest for the trees. Traveling through Germany, Poland, Sweden and Vancouver, Peter discusses, debates and explains the amazing processes of life, death, and regeneration he has observed in the woodland, and the amazing scientific mechanisms behind these wonders of which we are too often blissfully unaware.

Urban Tree Festival is a national event celebrating the importance of urban trees.

From the 13th to 21st May join Plymouth Tree Partnership to celebrate the first-ever Plymouth Urban Tree Festival! People in Plymouth clearly love trees so we are joining other cities including London and Belfast for the 6th annual Urban Tree Festival to celebrate how much we value and appreciate our city’s trees.

There will be a wide range of exciting events which cater for all ages and abilities. The Plymouth Tree Festival is independently run entirely by passionate local volunteers, tree experts, charities and groups.
