Battle for the Trees (1993)

Battle for the Trees (1993)

John Edginton, 1993, 57 min 2 s

(en) It is a complex battle being fought on many fronts--in corporate board rooms, in legislatures, on the streets, and in the woods. The weapons range from million-dollar public relations campaigns to quiet acts of civil disobedience. At stake are the last stands of old-growth coastal forest of British Columbia, which are being clearcut at an increased rate every year. Soon they will be gone forever. The soldiers are ordinary citizens, scientists, loggers, environmentalists, and Natives who are witnessing the liquidation of our public forests and, with it, a way of life. This important film examines the battle strategies of both sides, and offers some practical solutions that balance economic needs with the preservation of the ancient forests. If the battle for the trees is lost--and all of the old growth is clearcut--the silence on the barren hills will be a monument to the victory of corporate interests over public process.
This documentary examines the battle strategies of citizens, scientists, loggers, environmentalists and First Nations people who are fighting over the liquidation of public forests and, with it, a way of life.
