Documentary aims to protect trees and forests nationwide

Across the nation, invasive insects and diseases threaten to destroy shade-lined streets, forest industries, and agriculture. In a new documentary, Trees, Pests & People, The Nature Conservancy’s Forest Health Protection Program interviews concerned citizens and scientists about their stake in tree health across North America—focusing on what members of the public can do to help protect our forest resources.
Created in partnership with The Continental Dialogue on Non-Native Forest Insects and Diseases and the USDA APHIS, the documentary illustrates the wide ranging effects that these threats have on our cities, small businesses, and natural landscapes.
