Life of Trees

Life of Trees

Show Description

Trees are among the largest and longest living organisms on Earth and essential for all life. To grow tall, the tree has become a miracle of engineering and a complex chemical factory. By means of photosynthesis, the leaves combine water and salts with carbon dioxide from the air to produce the nutrients which feed the tree. Trees also remove carbon dioxide, the main greenhouse gas, from the air.  

Told by two quirky insects, a ladybug called Dolores and a firefly called Mike, Life of Trees takes you on an immersive, all digital journey that reveals the complex processes of what happens inside a tree. Both entertaining and educational, it is also a story about trees and their importance in the ecology of life here on earth. This delightful new animated film will show you nature from a completely different perspective!
