This 45 minute length documentary will not tell you all you might like to know about redwood trees, but the cinematography is spectacular. I have never seen such incredible footage of redwood forests before. This National Geographic special focuses on the work of Steve Stillet of Humboldt University. Stillet is a pioneer of redwood research having climbed hundreds of them beginning back in 1996. Apparently he is the first scientist to have scaled a redwood, but has done much more than tree hugging. Stillet has analyzed the canopies of the redwoods and studied the unique ecosytems atop such giants making new discoveries regarding the flora and fauna far up in the air.

Again, I teach a nature writing course in Northern California and I make this film available to my students. This film is all about our area, our most famous local professor, and about how little we pay attention to the nature around us. It is an eye-opening film for my students and gets them to get out, check out our forests, and be in awe of what is all too easily missed. It's a real hit!
I purchased this video after reading a fascinating book by Richard Preston, "The Wild Trees". The protagonist of the book, Steve Sillet, is featured in brief shots during the video, but there is really nothing about the other characters in the book. It does present the historic plight of the redwoods as well as an account of a marathon hike to collect data through the known, but often uncharted redwood territory, south to north. I had hoped for more video views of the redwood canopy. Overall, it is an interesting look at a biome that has nearly vanished.
