Someone told us that a tree takes an entire day to breathe in and breathe out one time; such is the relative speed of life between humans and our fellow trees. So we now say that TreeStory is growing at tree speed. Slowly, sometimes imperceptively but reaching its roots down, its limbs up for the coming seasons. We wish we could tell you that this season it will be done, but it has been a tough nut to crack—how to craft a dramatic story through a subject so vast.
Meanwhile our Facebook audience is nearing 25,000 friends and we want to thank our over 200 supporters whose kind and generous support has allowed us to make the progress we have made. Our supporters are like the water and sunlight needed for our tree to grow.
On the filming front, we recently completed a three-day shoot with a true tree action hero, Bernie O’Brien. Bernie spends his weekends and vacations rescuing trees from people’s property that are threatened to be cut down. It is back breaking work that Bernie does all by hand, taking most of a day to rescue one single tree. From these lone rescues, he has created a farm with now over 800 trees. Bernie is “fighting the good fight” and is also a tree philosopher and we look forward to bringing you his story and wisdoms when TreeStory comes ultimately to fruition.
Thank you again for your continued support, patience and interest and we will keep you informed as the tree grows.
